Born in 1954, in Araya Mount Lebanon.
At the age of five, his interest in painting was already apparent.
As a young boy of twelve, he started taking lessons with Harout Torossian, from whom he learned the basics of painting and the aquarelle (Watercolour) techniques.
He pursued his studies at the Michael Angelo Institute, and in 1982 graduated with a painting diploma. He furthered his learning through individual artistic studies and is considered today as one of the best Lebanese aquarellists.
Michel Rouhana's paintings are characterized by architectural details, shiny colors and vague contours. The transparency and charm of his work reflect Rouhana's confidence and maturity. Through his paintings, the artist gives us an impression of calmness and clarity, of innocence and purity.
Today, the works of Michel Rouhana adorn the walls of various prestigious locations such as governmental and royal palaces. His paintings have also been chosen by the M.E.A. for several years, to decorate their cards and menus. He is an officially designated artist of the Lebanese Presidential Palace and has received the Bronze Medal of General Emile Lahoud along with several trophies and honorary accreditations.
Michel Rouhana is currently the Art director of "Daraj El Fan" Association Jemmaizé and through his paintings, he represents a part of the Lebanese cultural heritage.
