Ar y wal | Off the wall is an exhibition by Wales based artists Sahar Saki and Sue Williams, to coincide with Beep Painting Prize 2022.

Using the gallery as a canvas, Sahar and Sue are painting directly onto walls and floors. Persian poetry and figurative drawing address current social issues within the context of traditional cultural values and identities.

About the artists:

Sahar Saki is an award-winning international artist and designer from Iran, based in Cardiff. She has received awards from UNESCO, Business Wales and Arts Council of Wales for her practice. Sahar has worked with different organisations and community centres including Welsh National Opera, Sherman Theatre, arcade Cardiff, Riverside Centre, Llanover Hall Arts Centre, GWENT art in health, Craft in the Bay, Cardiff Council and Madeinroath. Most of her projects are inspired by her Persian background and exploring her queer identity.

Sue Williams is a prominent international artist with a recognisable body of work and an exhibition history of both solo and group shows on five continents. Her autoethnographic practice, whether drawing or text, articulates the complexities of human relationships in a contemporary cultural context.Whether visual or textual, she demonstrates a vulnerability which invariably elicits emotive reaction. Williams continues to challenge and explore new concepts and multi-disciplinary art forms offering a direct response to the complex world of human frailty, drawing the viewer into a world of provocative social politics.Williams is Professor of Fine Art in Swansea College of Art, University of Wales Trinity Saint David.

Ar y wal | Off the wall continues at Mission Gallery until Saturday 13 August 2022.
