Henry Jabbour


Henry Jabbour was born in Beirut in 1961. He lives and works in Cambridge, UK.

As a child Jabbour liked to draw but never actually envisaged becoming a painter. In 1978 he began his biology studies at the American University in Beirut (AUB) from where he graduated with honors in 1982. In 1989, he completed a PhD in biology at the University of Sydney. Immediately after, he embarked on a science career in New Zealand and the UK.

During his research years, where he became head of the Medical Research Council Human Reproductive Sciences Unit at the University of Edinburgh, Henry Jabbour’s first love – painting – catches up with him.

“Holding a Chair in medical science, Jabbour, passionate about painting, resigns from his post in 2010 to enroll at a painting course at the Leith School of Art in Edinburgh. He goes on to obtain a Master of Fine Arts in 2015 at the New York Academy of Art and then establishes himself as a painter and graphic artist.

I admire Henry for his determination and his approach… his concerns are similar to mine”, writes Dr. Samir Tabet, Professor of chemistry and Vice President Emeritus at the American University of Beirut. Samir Tabet too is a painter.
