Samir Salahov, b. 1989

is an interdisciplinary artist working in various fields of visual and conceptual arts, which include street and digital art, artist books, graphics, painting and installations. His practice is  repleted in anthropological observations through hilarity and at the same time is influenced by his architectural studies.

Drawing is a core in Salahov’s art practice that bridges the gap between traditional and contemporary illustration with the use of various techniques, vibrant colors and captivating textures – in both still and moving images.
