Born in Gabon, Darwiche Chamaa is a Lebanese artist who masterfully captures the lush beauty of his homeland's landscape through abstract art. Influenced by Modernism, Impressionism, and Cubism, Chamaa embraces abstraction over realism, finding freedom in the exploration of colors and techniques.

Working primarily with oils and occasionally using acrylics and soft pastels, Chamaa begins his process with a watercolor wash. Layer by layer, he builds compositions, incorporating thickness and texture with oil paint. Chamaa's technique involves deconstructing the landscape into color fields and blocks connected by a web of lines. This simplification of structure and palette allows him to convey the pure essence of the Lebanese scenery.

Chamaa had solo exhibitions at Galerie Cheriff Tabet in Beirut, Lebanon, the Grand Egyptian Museum and Alkhaila Gallery, in Cairo, Egypt. Past group shows include Solidere Beirut, UNESCO Palace, the Lebanese Artists Association, Sursock Museum, and Saifi Village Gallery in Lebanon, and the World Photography Festival in France. His work is in the collections of the French Embassy in Beirut, Farhat Art Museum, and many other institutions.
