Sam Sakr Studio
My art is playful, humorous, stylized mixed media paintings and sculptures. Before I paint I usually have vague ideas that I need to express and bring out onto the surface. It’s a pleasant dream of animated places and creatures celebrating a new life. I have built a fantasy of organic villages, towns and cities. Welcome to my world!
