Originally from Istanbul, Samuray Arkvardar began taking art classes as a teenager in the basement of the local art museum. She was also very studious, and instead of pursuing her art immediately, she became an engineer and received a PhD in geophysics. “While working, I continued art classes wherever I could find time, visited galleries, and read about art,” says Samuray. In 2010, she finally decided to focus on making art full time. Samuray began taking art classes in California and further developed her contemporary style. Her figurative work is concerned with portraying the psyche through interpretations of portraiture. Using collage materials, including transparent acrylic sheets, Samuray aims to convey the complex layers of modern human existence.
