A landscape artist, Samir Sammoun has a vast repertoire of pictorial themes, e.g. willows, apple trees in bloom, wheat fields, olive trees, villages, storms, cityscapes and seascapes. His paintings reflect a tranquil happy mood. This is the art of a man who loves life. As the artist puts it, “I try to make the person looking at my painting feel the colour of the sky, the temperature of the air, and the breeze in the apple trees or the wheat stalks.” Sammoun’s art should be viewed from a distance of a few feet. From close, his paintings seem abstract.
