About the Artist

Julia Salameh is a Chicago based artist who creates hand-inked and penned artwork inspired by simplicity. Her drawings convey how something apparently basic can actually be complex and layered with meaning. Known for using black and white or highly contrasting colors, she forces us to look more closely at form and detail. Her designs reflect her love for calligraphy, patterns, movement, and graphic design.

Recently, Julia has begun practicing the traditional art of Ebru. Inspired by the fine detail that can be achieved by this ancient art, Julia is working on a series of marbled pieces and marrying this ancient art with her crisp, detailed line drawings.
