artist biography

Caroline Ghantous is a watercolor artist born in Cairo, Egypt, to a Palestinian mother and Lebanese father. After studying Art & Design at SJSU in California, she worked as an Art Director in advertising in Cairo and Dubai before moving to France to focus on her art.

Her main inspirations come from the 1920s, Frida Kahlo, fairies, nature and whimsical elements. Her art revolves around celebrating the sacred beauty of the female form, mind, and soul.

Caroline has explored various techniques, but watercolor remains her primary medium. Her first exhibition in France, titled “Silence,” focused on the female body, while her recent series, “I AM WOMAN,” showcases the beauty, strength, and expression of women through their eyes.

“My collection of paintings celebrates the depth and resilience of women, inspired by real and fictional women throughout history and my personal life. Focusing on the eyes and hair, the paintings highlight the strength and femininity women communicate, even in the face of historical oppression. Through expressive eye contact and body language, women convey a wealth of emotion and information, showcasing their unique ways of thriving despite societal challenges. I use embroidery in some paintings to add a layer which contrasts boldness with softness, emphasizing the duality of strength and femininity in women.”
