Huseyin Sami

Sydney based artist Huseyin Sami (b. 1979) is known for his multi-disciplinary practice engaging with painting, sculpture and installation to explore aspects of time, action and process. Examining the possibilities inherent in the painted process- color, form and material- he deconstructs the process and substance of painting in order to formulate what he calls ‘a unique material language of painting.”

Sami has been exhibited both in Australia and internationally, including at 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art, Sarah Cottier Gallery and Artspace in Sydney, Uplands Gallery in Melbourne, Galerie Perpetuel in Germany, Bell Street Project Space in Austria, and Zenshi Gallery in Japan. He received several awards for his work including the Janet Holmes à Court Artist's’ Grant, an Australia Council New Work Grant and the CCA Contemporary Arts Centre Scholarships.
