The Figure Painter
Saabira has always found much interest in People Watching; learning about people’s mannerisms of all walks of life and enjoying varying cultures. Saabira’s childhood was littered with multiculturalism and grew up celebrating different cultures and religions. This has lead to her fascination with people and why they do the things they do. Saabira applies this interest very strongly to her Artwork. She mainly focuses on the perception of the human form and presenting it in a non conventional manner whilst maintaining a high level of sincere realism.
Her work can be described as graphic, bold and engaging. Saabira’s portfolio is an in depth understanding of shape and form. She uses colour and line to accentuate movement and body; creating a tonal and vibrant rendition with flat shapes of colour lying side by side. She draws graphically, paying close attention to light, shadow and curvature of the form. Saabira’s work strives to present a balanced composition, with line and colour wrapping the body in a tranquil series of contour lines. The balance of a strong pose whilst maintaining tranquillity in the form is something that resonates with Saabira’s pieces. She works on an array of surfaces, but favours oil paint and wood panel. Her work is very transferable. She uses Photoshop techniques and digital elements to appeal to a variety of surfaces and uses of her images.
