About this Item

#3737 -" Sara Shamma 2008" by Sara Shamma. Born in Damascus in 1975, She began painting in 1979 at the age of four. From 1982 to 1985 she took drawing courses for children at the Adham Ismaiil Fine Arts Institute. She went on to study at the Faculty of Fine Arts at Damascus University and graduated in 1998, and went on to teach at the Adham Ismaiil Fine Arts Institute from 1997 to 2000. Sara is now one of the leading painters in Syria also a well known painter in the world. She has been a full time artist since 1994. Shamma is a beautiful woman, who is not afraid to use her own image in what is undoubtedly some of the most unconventional art since Picasso. Where she differs is that the human visual impression of the subject remains a person, sometimes distorted as though seen through water or clear glass and even malformed, like someone cursed at birth, but not a parody of a human as Picasso's subjects were so often. And there are beautiful imagws of children as well. Much emotion is captured by this very talented woman. Bookseller Inventory # 003737
