Salwa Zeidan Gallery
acrylic on canvas
100cm x 90cm
Formed from a desire to capture her inner emotions, Salwa Zeidan’s expressionist paintings are both bold and intimate. In an attempt to mould the texture of life from daily conflicts to collective catastrophes, her paintings are a reflection of her internal consciousness that morphs and changes with experience in the real world.
Salwa Zeidan is a Lebanese self-taught artist who dedicated herself to learning art history throughout her life. She developed her own technique through personal research, books and visits to hundreds of galleries, museums and artist studios.
