Sami Gjuka

orking in a variety of materials such as soft pastels, watercolour, ink on paper as well as oil on canvas, Sami Gjuka’s works stand on the edge of many movements. Surrealism, abstraction and symbolism informs and influences the artist’s technique as well as more classical art styles, however above all he is seeking to express his own metaphysical ideas. Dreamlike scenes of human actions are recurring motifs, as well as entwined symbols of nature; particularly trees and forests.

Born in Kosovo, Gjuka studied Painting at the Academy of Art in Sarajevo, Brussels and Amsterdam. Having been invited to the Global Art Award in Dubai, his work ‘By the Lake’ will be exhibited in November. He currently lives and works in Denmark. sami-gjuka.dk sami.gjuka@gmail.com
