samah shihadi (born in shaa’b, in 1987) is a haifa-based artist and a graduate with a ba in art from oranim college (2012) and an mfa from haifa university (2015). shihadi has painted for as long as she can remember and having spent seven years studying art, she has emerged as a fine talent who has mastered the art of draughtsman ship. shihadi focuses on drawing, in a realistic style, evoking an illusion of a photograph. her pencil and charcoal work is truly sublime, even if the subject matter can often be harrowing: she is profoundly interested in the daily personal and social challenges that women face--both at home and beyond. her empathy and steadfastness are beautifully and sensitively articulated in her work. shihadi has received numerous prizes and exhibited consistently in israel, palestine, middle east and europe.
