With the same hand that danced on the strings of music to create the most beautiful international melodies, the musician Rania Maasrani blew up among her fingers masterpieces of creativity, so she carved on the rock scenes from the ancient Syrian civilization to establish them as a strong unique document as the strength of the Syrian female spirit.

Academic musician Rania Maasrani, in her unique experience, combined music, plastic art, Ajami art and photography to create a special impression of beauty, dedicating it to a twin of herself.

Rania's story with music began at the age of six at the Arab Institute of Music (currently the Salhi Al-Wadi Institute) and at that time she was drawing drawings with pencils and ink.

With time, she developed her drawing and became drawing with Chinese ink, drawings in black and white, and at a later period watercolors were introduced to Chinese ink.

In the field of music, she graduated through her career with many important stations. She is a graduate of the Higher Institute of Music, specializing in the violin, and a founding member of the Syrian National Symphony Orchestra led by Maestro Salhi Al-Wadi in 1993. She played with the Symphony Orchestra led by Maestro Misak Baghboudrian in many Arab and foreign countries and a number of Syrian cities.

Rania is a player in the Syrian National Ensemble for Arab Music, led by Maestro Adnan Fathallah, and in the Orpheus Orchestra, led by Maestro Andre Maalouli. She won a silver medal in 2011 from the French Academy of Arts, Sciences and Letters, which was founded in 1915.

In Rania's plastic work, we find the diversity between different types of arts, from Chinese ink and watercolor to sculpting on clay to Ajami, and she uses in a number of her works the ancient style of sculpting (high and bas-relief sculpting) on ​​clay, which is the art of relief.

In this way, the antiquities of Palmyra were documented by presenting ancient floral, animal and engineering inscriptions and drawings derived from the local environment.

She reflected her influence on what Palmyra was subjected to at the hands of the terrorist organization “ISIS”, so she searched and read about the great Palmyra civilization and the inscriptions in its temples, and was fascinated by women’s ornaments of beauty and good taste, so she studied them carefully and then held an exhibition at the Opera House 2019 and almost half of the exhibits were sculptures inspired by Palmyra.

Rania's creativity did not stop here. She was fascinated by the prominent colorful wooden ceilings and painted cabinets in the old Arab Damascene houses called Ajami. She learned the Ajami technique and then started using this technique in her drawings.

Sculpture with Rania has a different story, as she entered the field of sculpture after visiting the Ahmed Walid Ezzat Center in Damascus, from which she learned the colors of ceramics, and then discovered there the pleasure of sculpting. She also practiced photography.

Rania has held a number of solo exhibitions, including at Al-Riwaq Gallery in Jordan, the National Museum of Damascus, the Syrian Cultural Center in Paris, Ishtar Hall and the Opera House in Damascus. She has a group of group exhibitions at the Russian Cultural Center in Damascus and the Arab Cultural Center in Abu Rummaneh.
