Sarah Bahbah: SPLASH

  • Lawrence Alkin Gallery
  • June 8-22, 2018

Artist and influencer Sarah Bahbah is thrilled to announce her first UK solo exhibition opening 7 June 2018 at Lawrence Alkin Gallery in Mayfair. Following her major success at Art Basel Miami and ever-expanding 520k Instagram following, the show will present a collection of the 26-year-old’s viral cinematic photography and written dialogue infused with her signature brand of youthful feminine ennui. Her raw storytelling visuals illustrate themes of sex, romance, heartbreak and coming of age.

In her latest collection ‘SPLASH’, the Palestinian-born, Australian-raised artist crystallises the universal but rarely captured experience of oversaturated, intense feelings and imperfect relationships. Her characters give voice to the vast spectrum of emotion lived by an underrepresented demographic, spanning the desire for true love, fear of commitment, playful ambivalence towards life and the paradox of wanting intimacy but craving isolation.

Known for her explicit exploration into the intimate psyche of millennial women, Bahbah empowers her audience to embrace indulgence and self-love in all its forms. Smashing the stereotype of female emotion being a hindrance, her storytelling harnesses the power of the taboo and celebrates the liberation of transparency and desire.

Displayed in major art exhibitions around the world with celebrity admirers including Emma Watson, Diplo and Sophia Bush, her practise has been celebrated in Vogue and Forbes. With a cult-like following on Instagram, her feminist social cause has worldwide reach and impact.

With anticipation for her London show simmering among fans, it’s clear that Bahbah is solidifying her position as one of the most influential independent visual artist of our time.
