About

Gazing at Lebanese American artist Sally K.'s floral portraits is consuming and empowering. Inspired by strong, feminine women, she creates pop-realistic paintings that speak to the energetic female experience; one of individuality and an inherent strength in femininity. There are endless floral arrangements capping the mysterious visages of beautiful women, capturing attention through a celebration of floral abstraction and wild, fanciful coloration. Lavish in application and luxurious in composition, Sally K.'s work is inspired by pop art, culture, and fashion.

This 36 inch high by 24 inch wide vivid painting is wired and ready to hang. The sides of this original artwork are painted as a continuation of the front and it does not require framing. Free local Los Angeles area delivery and installation, including placement and hardware. Affordable U.S. and global shipping options available. A certificate of authenticity issued by the art gallery is included.

Sally K was born in Ohio following her family’s emigration from Lebanon. Shortly after her birth, her family moved to Saudi Arabia, where she stayed until she was 14. Sally attended high school and college in Beirut, where she graduated with a BA in Fine Arts with distinction from the Lebanese American University of Beirut. In 2013, Sally and her family moved back to the United States and she now paints out of her studio in California.

The focus of Sally’s portraits is contemporary women. Her style merges characteristics of abstract expressionism with realism and portrait painting to convey not just the beauty of women, but their confidence and strength as well. They are alluring, flirtatious, and demure with an inspiring femininity that Sally describes as the “sensuality, independence, and confidence you see in strong women.”

Sally’s portraits of women are intensely personal. “The women I paint are an extension of me, of what I feel, how I process my surroundings, my thoughts, my anger, my pleasure. They’re the confident strong women that I strive to be. Sometimes tough and daring, sometimes shy and reserved, but always self-assured and determined; they represent what captivates me in other woman; the qualities I admire, and strengths that I strive to gain.”

Sally draws inspiration from photography, pop culture and fashion as well as artists ranging from the pop art of Willem de Kooning and Jackson Pollock to the gilded florals and figures of Gustav Klimt. Her highly regarded paintings have been featured in group and solo shows in Beirut, Dubai, Italy, and the USA. Notable collectors include Jesse McCartney and Kelly Clarkson.
