The Founder of Chamoun Gallery
Nour Chamoun is a creative visionary from Syria who aspires to make the world a better place by sharing beauty and harmony through her artistic incubation space, “Chamoun Gallery.”
Collectively, with all the members of her creative space, she calls upon storytellers and art lovers to join, share, and interact with each other and the rest of the world, to communicate their unique knowledge and artistic craft, and to highlight the long authentic cultural heritage embedded within their creations.
Nour herself has an inspiring story. She left her hometown of Aleppo, Syria during the hardships of war and started a new life path in Montreal, Canada. During her early years in Syria, while studying tourism, she was captivated by the land’s history, which stretches back thousands of years, and the greatness of all the lost civilizations and their extraordinary contributions to the world’s heritage, knowledge, art (architecture, mosaics, sculptures, etc.), and literature. She was particularly fascinated by (Mari Kingdom) and the empire of (Palmyra) and its extraordinary Queen “Zenobia.”
Additionally, Nour was fascinated by the power of art and its ability to communicate human experiences beyond measures and words. This power extends not only to contemporary artworks but also to historical artifacts passed down by her ancestors from the great nations of the cradle of civilizations, Syria.
Throughout history, even during times of war and conflict, art has always been a way to capture human experiences, values, and stories. It has helped raise awareness of “The happening” through joy, suffering, and everything in between. Art is a universal language that requires no interpretation; it speaks to the heart and elevates us to a better state of being.
Driven by her sheer passion, Nour decided to embark on her first artistic venture in Canada by establishing ArteArta Gallery in 2019 as an online art gallery. Her dream to share creativity, emotions, and stories of beauty through art and artists’ journeys continued and eventually led her to rebrand the space as “Chamoun Gallery” in 2023. Through this transformation, Nour aspires to create an interactive community that plays an essential part in supporting and empowering creative artists to share and communicate their artworks with a wider global audience, bringing harmony and beauty into our lives.
When you connect with the stories behind each artist in this space, you will understand the power and passion embedded in their art process, as well as the number of values inherently communicated through their works.
“Art plays a very important role in our lives. We need beauty now more than ever, and art helps us experience harmony.“
