At the tender age of 12, Sam Misan could well be the youngest artist to exhibit at the Radlett Centre.
His exhibition entitled Perek Shira: Nature’s Song runs throughout January and looks at life and death in nature and the balance of life.
All the paintings in the exhibition are of birds and Hebrew calligraphy, painted in watercolour and ink on watercolour paper using the dripping and bleeding technique.
The aim of the work is to show the beauty of the words within the Torah’s Perek Shira.
Sam, of Canons Close in Radlett, discovered his love of art through nature, walking in woods and fields and always pestering his dad to take him on woodland trails.
He then started drawing the animals he saw on the trails and from that, he joined an art class where he learned the techniques of drawing and painting.
He has appeared on the children’s nature show WILD where he was filmed on one of his woodland walks showing youngsters how to collect natural objects.
