Sami Salem | Egypt
Salem’s journey has been vast and varied from graduating in Alexandria (Egypt) for Political and Economic Sciences in 1984, to working at embassies in London, Santiago de Chile, New Delhi, Montevideo and Bogota. His first attempts with pastel were in 1987 after attending a weekend workshop with British artist Colin Bradley in Broadstairs, Kent. This workshop inspired him to further develop his artistic talent beginning to practice other techniques such as acrylics. Most of his artwork is still in the pastel medium creating stunning original portraits and drawings.
