Showcase & Discover Creative Work

Serj Sabet

Visual artist based in Germany-Überlingen

Uberlingen, Germany
I have been involved with a number of art projects of a wide range from voluntary work, teaching at painting workshops, to more exciting project such as my recent project an Artists exchange program Salem2salem art residency at Schloss Salem in Germany.

Salem2Salem art residency was an opportunity to work alongside of other artists from different background and stages in their career. This was the most important point for me as a professional artist, because most of the time I am working in my studio on my own without the possibility to exchange viewpoints with other artists. Three weeks Salem2Salem residency at the Salem castle enable me to observe other artists approach to their practice, but also to engage in lively discussions about art and life in general.

Back in London I worked in Brent Artists Resources art gallery as a Volunteers Coordinator where I recruited and motivated volunteers. Apart from my work in the gallery I also worked as a Freelance Artisan in London offering my services to designers and architects; producing decorative samples, experimenting with different materials and various classical decorative interior design mainly from Baroque period. My experience in developing and presenting personal and group art shows has given me great organizational skills, including dealing with people of different disciplines, trades and skills, of age and culture as well as budgeting and time management. This is vital in relation to my own personal art business where I produce and sell my own artwork as well as working as an artist.
