Sara Hoque’s Early Career and Influences
Born in North Yorkshire to a Norwegian mother and British/Bengali father, Sara enjoyed a nomadic and multicultural upbringing. Sara draws many of her works from dreams and memories of childhood travels to unusual and enchanting places and her time spent in Wales and Norway. Sara studied Fine Art at Kingston University in London. Since graduating, the artist has been living in London.
Inspiration and Practice
Drawn to surrealist notions of consciousness, transcendence, and the sublime, Sara blurs the lines between reality and dreams by mixing familiar imagery with vivid colours and unbounded forms. Fantastic elements integrate with loose, abstract narratives, creating scenes that transport you to otherworldly places.
Exhibitions and Press
Sara has exhibited her escapist landscape paintings at The Other Art Fair in London, among other shows. The artist currently resides on a 40ft narrowboat. Cruising the London canals, she continues to produce spellbinding works to return to the power and mystery of the places she first experienced as a child.
