Today we’d like to introduce you to Rebecca Molayem.
Rebecca, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
I’ve been an artist pretty much all my life. I studied graphic design and illustration and worked in the field as a freelancer for several years while raising my two kids. However, I always knew my great passion was painting, and about 20 years ago I transformed my sculptures into a painting style of my own.
With great support and love from my family, I started showing my paintings and sculptures at several art shows and galleries and in 2009 I opened my Gallery.
It’s been a great journey full of challenges and growth, and along the way, I’ve met so many fabulous artists, clients, and new friends.
We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
I paint in several mediums such as Acrylics, Oils, Encaustic and Tar and would call myself an expressionist artist with a whimsical touch who loves color and composition! I also sculpt in clay and teach sculpting at my studio.
I love trying new mediums, challenging myself, and inspire the audience to do the same in their lives.
Be creative and passionate in everything you do and thoroughly enjoy the process! Remember, You don’t have to please everybody with your work, do what you love, work hard, and your tribe will follow.
About my artwork:
I do bold, compositional figurative and landscape paintings mostly from memory with no models or pictures. I also do colorful, whimsical sculptures in clay and bronze.
In the past 2 years, I started working in Encaustic, which is wax medium and color pigments on panels.
Several of my paintings are also available in Giclee prints on canvas and paper.
I do have a Home collection line consisting of Pillows, plates, and mugs and currently, I’m developing more pieces that would be available in 2019.
Have things improved for artists? What should cities do to empower artists?
I believe artists today have to juggle a lot more than before..do the creative part and do their own PR and sales in most cases, which could make life harder for an artist.
I have always loved outdoor art shows and participated in many, and it would be great to see more of them around the city. I think it’s a great way to attract a large audience in a short amount of time, especially for new upcoming artists.
Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
You can visit my Gallery and Studio in Los Angeles or check out my website, Instagram or Facebook.
You can also take one of my workshop or classes.
