Young Cannes artist born in 1989, Lis Sam, from an early age, has a pronounced taste for creation. Self-taught from the Street Art culture, he first expressed his art through graffiti, tags and other drawings.
Later, his works take a more flowery turn when he integrates roses into his universe. Lis Sam quickly became known for her refined creations and now exhibits in several international galleries.
It is with the desire to tell his story that he incorporates butterflies into his glass sculptures and his paintings. It is also a way of symbolizing his personal “rebirth”: from a construction worker to an international artist living on his passion ...
LIS SAM butterflies are a sign of hope and prove that anything is possible, They are a hymn to FREEDOM.
He then took an artistic turn: optical art. He creates more contemporary works, mixing touches of street art.
For several years he developed his own technique.Lis Sam echoes his long moments spent in butterfly greenhouses in the South of France. Seeing them spinning in all directions, he imagined them freezing to form his favorite characters.
Back in his studio, he set about bringing his colorful portraits to life.
He then frames his work under museum glass, as if they were again in a greenhouse.
With the different play of light on the canvas, the distance at which we stand, everyone sees a UNIQUE canvas.
