Born in the Lebanese seaside village of Sahel Alma, Labibé Zogbé, known as Bibi emigrated to Argentina at the age of sixteen. Her professional artistic career began in the 1930’s with a number of exhibitions in Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro, in Chile and Uruguay, in Paris and elsewhere.

At the end of the Second World War, she lived in Paris and Dakar and from there she went to Lebanon in 1947. Her long-awaited dream of returning to Lebanon came true and she was soon recognized as a successful and talented artist worthy of mention in the Bénézit.

In that year, she held a one-woman show at the Cénacle Libanais.It was from her first exhibition that Bibi Zogbé earned the title of «El Peintora des Flores» – The Painter of Flowers.
