Sam Rahamin


Rachamin is a Paris based painter and educator with a background in classical painting sculpture and drawing.

His art brings together traditional techniques and a contemporary outlook, he works primarily in  oil, acrylics, ink, charcoal and graphite.

Sam built art programs including workshops, tours and art lessons to make the art world more accessible for artists, painters and art lovers.
