‘1988’ By Samosa

While the pandemic affected artists in diverse ways, being creative helped them survive. Samosa (Simone Gabrielle) is a DJ who couldn’t do her job during the shutdown and, in 2020, turned to creating visual art to process it all. Now that she’s back in the world, she continues to express herself in art. Working in combinations of media like oil pastels, acrylic paints and charcoal, her pieces are a result of the music she was listening to at the time. The title of her latest exhibition is a reference to the year she was born.
