For over 15 years Greek-American artist Triada Samaras has been exploring the themes of identity, house/home, voice, and geography in her artwork, often in art activist and socially engaged contexts in New York City and Athens, Greece that have won her international recognition.
Samaras is also a studio artist working in Brooklyn where she creates personal, emotional, intuitive and idiosyncratic interpretations of these themes in paintings, drawings and photographs. These works often feature her poems and writings.
Originally educated in Fine Art at Smith College, Northampton, and the Museum School of Fine Art in Boston, MA, Samaras has also completed graduate work in art, art education, and interdisciplinary art at Columbia University, New York, and Goddard College, Vermont. She is currently an Adjunct Professor of Drawing and Fine Art at Kean University and at William Paterson University.
