Samar F Zia

Samar F Zia's residency agreement commenced in September 2017 and ran until March 2018. Her work with us, aside from producing original artwork, extended to leading workshops and supporting our Arts team to realise the Camels Project - a project funded by the Derwent London Community Fund.

“My practice comprises an interdisciplinary experiment consisting mostly of Neo-Miniature paintings, collage and a cross between the two. Besides the 2D pieces, I have also produced a series of wearable ornaments, inspired by the concept of amulets and its revered implication in certain sects of Islam.”

In Summer 2017, Samar's work went into exhibition at the Fitzrovia Chapel. Bahishti Cultures was a one-day event as part of FitzFest 2017.
