About the artist - Samaira Ali:
"I was born in Copenhagen, Denmark and have Pakistani heritage. I studied Italian and History of Art at University of Copenhagen.
In 2011, I moved to London with my family.
With the benefit of an intercultural background, I have defined ways in which to combine different styles of art, creating new aesthetics and new forms of expressions that lead the viewer to reflect and consider art in new and diverse ways. I constantly seek to expand my understanding of art in ways that go beyond just the aesthetic aspect. I strive to create works that invite reflection and dialogue.
Some of my paintings represent a juxtaposition of Calligraphy and Western Art forms - in an effort to challenge the audience’s understanding of artistic and cultural categorization, thereby introducing new ways of appreciating intercultural art.
I love working with bold colours. For me the bright colours generates a radiant energy and positively effect the mood off the viewer."
