Samira Badran

Badran was born in Libya in 1954. Influenced by her father, artist Jamal Badran who played an important role in bringing her to the world of art, she studied at the Cairo University Fine Arts College, and at the Florence Fine Arts Academy where she received a degree in etching and painting in 1982.


In 1980, Badran undertook a mural painting project at Belgium’s Liége University. She has exhibited in a number of Arabic and European countries, and at the Washington Museum of Women in the Arts. Badran’s works are filled with an “explosive anger characterized by a savage psychodrama of paint”. She has recently experimented with works based on photocopies and with painting on photographs.


She now resides in Spain.
