Sabrina Shah

My paintings are populated by groups of animal-faced anthropomorphic figures who don’t quite fit; they are engaged in the process of looking at those who are looking at them. Their presence and creation comments on our tolerance of mistakes in society.


My work attempts to practice a self-acceptance, a performance of resilience-making through relationships, struggle and self-disclosure.


As in any good story, an element of suspense and surprise is crucial. But for the stories in my paintings, I want them to continue on, in a similar way to my journey as a painter.
