1463051_10202263289165003_242363545_nIt all started with a dream that has materialized into an art form of success. In these days in Milan (up to 31 December), at the local Castelli Gourmet (Via Cerano 15) holding an exhibition of paintings undoubtedly impressive and very original, we invite you to visit. “Castles, Dragons and other Flowers!, this is the name of the exhibition of the painter and photographer Samira Zuabi who told Moda e Style how did your passion, but most of all as he materialized in his paintings.

“As a child I always dreamed of a castle. I wanted to reach as Princess, because as a child I felt like a princess, in the most romantic sense of the term, because I have always believed and still believe in happy endings

Samira, as it was to create a show like this?

SZG_0530It took me a long time to realize this exhibition, due to a little’ impediments of various kinds that did not allow me to find the right concentration, but especially the inspiration. Then when I found the right balance, after a year off I started painting again and reached the “Castle”. At first I was not very convinced to expose, I vergognavo, Then it looked like a child, Then I showed it to my mother Mariluz who said a word: “wonderful”. He is excited. To me it was enough to understand that other people could also excite, and so it was.

Ch and then climb up the ladder that leads me to the sky, a clear sky where the moon rock you my most beautiful dreams will rest fincchè and where I will not have recovered your breath, to go down again to the earth, where I bacierai and where happiness will shine us x…

After this work, what you've accomplished, we see here on display?

sconfiggendo un dragoIt’ arrived “Dragon“. It’ born from a chat between friends, when it ironically on the arrival of Prince Charming and you fear instead of running into a dragon. This mythological figure represents the difficulties of life, the problems that we face every day. It’ however, that is not a dragon spitting fire…

But what the Dragon would never have expected was to revel much! Goodness and badness together to play in the life! When Ma May? And instead… spent hours in front of the deck of cards… Al Drago passed well as hunger! The Principessa, goodness personified, won a thousand times with his Ace of Hearts, with his Huge Heart! But the wickedness that the Dragon represented, not being able to fight in other ways, now that the rules had been established and is won by guile and not by force, he resigned … And the clouds gave way to sun, and the calm after the storm came… because both, calm and Tempest, playing together in life, everyone throws his paper in turn… and then, both have their own time and their ability to play with us… but you…chi vince?… matches are many, the deck is only one… I do the hand this time…

We continue this path getting to the next picture…

386534_486989577991152_714144580_nThoughts like flowers” is a conceptual framework, at least that has been defined. It’ very personal. The sky is turquoise as in many of my paintings; represents the positive, the Libertà, Happiness. Although this work was created by accident, a day, a Milano, a beautiful sunny day and blue sky in winter rarely that we can admire. I took a picture and here is my heaven. Looking at the big picture, haired where the flowers come there is a black wire that connects the most important things for Samira: the child who is crawling motherhood, or my desire to become a mother; Moon, night, represent a moment of magic and inspiration; il big ben, there is little to say, my ideal city, where you want to live?. The horse reflects the prince who fails to materialize, or even the medium that will take me to him. Who knows… The cat is my life partner; the water droplets have a double meaning: or the water that washes away all or, alas the tears shed. Let us go forward, the spiral represents the eternal love, then find my beloved castle which is my fortress; scale, the way to continue to rise… The heart needs no explanation and then an inevitable element in all my paintings.. And finally, the car is a symbol of travel, mobility, motion for me that I never stop.

THOUGHTS AS FLOWERS…
Because in my head brew a world of peace and glory, dove the fantasy, the world of fairy tales can live with the reality around becoming brighter…
Because even if you do not believe I still believe…
Because every time the reality slaps me I pull out a flower… (although before I cry a little)
My garden is always greener… and one of these days you will come to rest with me… And you'll see that your garden is colored…
One of these days the reality will be even more beautiful of my (and your) best dreams…
One of these days we svegliaremo together…

Take another of your paintings…

Oh I forgot the Prince, se c’è bene, otherwise expect that sooner or later the right one comes, on foot or on horseback!

She dreams of the cold and the night, la neve, that with his fall all the lava and all covers, and you forget the heat of a summer that should end… she dreams of winter, even when there is the sea…
