Kayan Hamadeh is a self-taught painter and illustrator based out of Vancouver, BC. She is best known for her dreamy scenic and figurative paintings & illustrations created with oil paints and opaque watercolors. Originally a portrait artist, Kayan’s muses have evolved into primarily scene scapes all the while maintaining her memorable style and techniques. Her work has been featured in various publications and media outlets and she is also involved in Vancouver's emerging art scene, having been a part of multiple locally curated art shows.
Taking a second to step back to appreciate the moment is sometimes very difficult to do in our fast-paced lives. Through my paintings, I capture those moments, transforming them from fleeting into lasting. My work takes something as simple as a neutral or airy color palette, a private moment, or a peaceful scene to satisfy our senses and remind us to slow down and take a deep breath. The paintings I create encapsulate the beauty that can be found in daily life with a little bit of mindfulness and the beauty that is often looked over; all you have to do is stop and smell the roses (or paint them!).
