Solara Shiha

Presented by:

Solara is a Syrian architect and artist based in Berlin. She obtained her Bachelor and Diploma in Architecture from Tishreen University in Latakia, where she taught Architectural Theory for two years before receiving a scholarship to join a Masters program at TU Berlin. She started drawing as a child and has developed a sense for details and ornaments ever since. One of the main subject she works with is the feeling or situation of loss; loss of loved ones, memories and places. She nevertheless often uses bright, strong colours and an excessively ornamental style. Her work was exhibited three times in Berlin, and she is the artist director of RESTART.
