About Samira Addo

I’m a self-taught artist with a love of portraiture – to me, portraits can engage attention, evoke emotions, and hold a level of relatability unlike any other genre. My art often reflects themes I have a close association with, from moments with friends, to countries explored. Often, I tend to find inspiration in the subtleties of a facial expression or from the exploration of colour and construction. Currently, I’ve been working predominantly in oils, in a style that may be considered as contemporary realism.
