About The Artist

Born in 1989 in Liverpool, England, Samantha has always been creative, using the arts to express, heal and transform emotion onto paper using whatever tools she had around her.


Upon first glance, the drawings of Samantha Messias appear to be photographs captured with astounding clarity. However, each one of her works is entirely constructed with pencil and charcoal, with the exception of her “Into the Wild” collection, where a little splash of abstract colour is added to the background. Samantha’s hyper-realistic drawings are as laden with stunning visual dexterity as they are with emotional meaning.


Having endured a traumatic childhood, Samantha turned to art as a healing mechanism. At the age of 5, the only way she knew how to communicate what had happened to her was through drawing it.


After graduating university in 2012, Samantha discovered Hyperrealism and began teaching herself the skills and disciplines needed to produce such remarkable art and has since rendered the world around her in piercing detail.


Focusing predominantly on portraiture, Samantha Messias pushes her subjects to the foreground of the composition, thus inviting the viewer to observe the microscopic clarity that comprises every plane of her drawings.


Exhibited in 2018’s “Life Is but A Dream” exhibition at New York’s renowned Agora Gallery and showcasing her drawings in London and internationally, Samantha continues to work from her studio in Chester City doing what she does best… bringing life to drawings, creating the perfect gift for you to cherish forever and inspiring hope in others with her story of survival along the way.
