Telegraph & Argos Sculptor Making Name for Himself
“AS a child I loved drawing – on books, on walls, anywhere.”
Sam Shendi enjoyed art above everything else. “I had a talent and was not much good at anything but art,” says the Egyptian-born sculptor who live and works in West Yorkshire. “I thought that I should study art because that was what I was good at.”
His instincts were right. Sam, 39, is making a name for himself as a sculptor. He strips the human body to its simplest form to create eye-catching works, exploring the idea of the human body as a vessel, a container. To this he adds colour, both primary and pastel.
