Born in Kuwait in 1977, Tamara al Samerraei lives and works between Beirut & Kuwait. She received a BA in Fine Arts from the Lebanese American University in Beirut in 2002.
"In Samerraei's work we are always in front of the borderline between twin realms. The prevalent ambiguity of her spaces and what inhabits them stands between the familiar and the improbable. Her work takes us into a world of childhood, but is it? Or it is an adult who is reminiscing? Are her spaces undefined surfaces like suggested memories, or is it what we know by heart and eyes since we were born. She poses difficult questions with a lightness and playfulness that leave her scenes seeping into our visual world with ease, and yet, unsettling."
