Sasha Ali Niamat
Sasha Ali Niamat is a Trinidad artist living in Nottingham, United Kingdom. She has expressed herself with many mediums over the years but her passion lies with watercolours. This is because of the unpredictability of this type of paint and the challenge it presents to achieve depth whilst maintaining its translucency.
Her subjects are varied as she continues to develop her skills as an artist. Sasha's love of painting flowers was encouraged by her grandparents’ tireless devotion to their garden. She paints her flowers from photographs because nature is constantly changing. She explains that for each painting many photos are taken to appreciate the different natural light and different possibilities for composition. Sometimes photos are combined to achieve a successful painting.
Sasha also enjoys painting cityscapes from her travels. She enjoys depicting intricate architecture and reflections. This is why she says Venice is one of her favourite places to visit and paint. Landscapes are becoming a favourite of hers as she experiments with combining different mediums with the watercolour to achieve added texture and interest.
