Studio Visit With Artist Sara Shamma

Damascus – Lebanon – London

Artist Sara Shamma lived and studied in Damascus, Syria and after a short stay in Lebanon, she moved to London where she currently lives and works, under the auspices of an Exceptional Talent Visa.

She focuses on death and humanity through portraits and children that are often created after years of research. She doesn’t steer away from the topic of death, and considers the impact of grief and deep emotions. The Syrian conflict has a big impact on the way she is depicting her subjects.

She has been supporting the United Nations World Food Programme and has won many awards.

Her new exhibition: “Modern Slavery” (1 October – 22 November 2019), Monday to Friday 10:00 – 17:00, Arcade at Bush House, South Wing, Strand WC2B 4PJ, London, King’s College London
