Meet the Artist


 

Samia Zoghlami is a painter well known in Tunisia who is beginning to establish her reputation abroad. She studied art in Paris and was a pupil of the famous Tunisian artist Nejib Belkhodja. Her painting merges elements of her local artistic traditions with the currents of contemporary and 20th century art, lending her a distinctive individual voice. The roots of these local traditions are not just Arab and Berber, but extend back all the way to ancient Greece, Rome and Carthage. www.samzog.com
