The Arts Corner


Meet Samantha Messias, hyperrealist artist.




Born 1989, Liverpool England and now living in the heart of Lancashire, Samantha spends most of her time creating these highly realistic and intensely detailed drawings.


2013 was the year Samantha decided to learn more about the genre of Realism and Hyperrealism and taught herself the skills to produce such works of Art, using her childhood as the catalyst behind expanding her artistic skills over the years and creating beautifully, detailed hyper-realistic drawings, adding so much emotion, time and life to each piece she completes.

“The way I create my drawings is not about trying to reproduce every exact detail, texture and contrast from the reference material… It's about adding something that wasn't there before, intensifying and manipulating details, contrasts and textures, awakening emotion, life and curiosity into the heart of the observer not just into the art work itself.”

“I love to draw life, emotion, culture and those who have created great and positive change and I am building a wide variety of art works to share this vision.”
