Sandra Encaoua

Sandra Encaoua, is a French artist. Her works have been exhibited mainly in US and Europe.


Sandra received a Miami Art Grant 2020 and won the 2018 People Choice Award from the Wellington Art Society. She is a member of the Taylor Foundation (Paris, France) and the Jewish Art Salon (New York). Her works have been listed on the Art Market since 2012.


Fascinated by nature and raw elements, she creates her paintings in a changing, violent and free world. She is mainly interested by natural imperfect patterns. Her painting is subtitle with double exposure and thickened. Processing the material is key for her, who likes to work and mix until it is perfectly in keeping with the pattern. Her art could be named as a Spiritual Painting.

    ENCAOUA I Exhibition @ Invalides, Paris, France

    29 Apr 2022 – 23 May 2022

    'There is no light without shadow' - Louis Aragon  The canvases of the [Passing Through] Series are dug, scarified, almost tortured; the characters appear damaged, bruised, and yet there they are, standing, luminous, present to the world. The paint, applied almost carnally, in thick or very diluted layers, is deeply inscribed in the material, penetrates the linen, makes it vibrate with a life of its own. It is the unconscious of the painter which is inscribed on the fabric of the frame, an unconscious returned to the light, a part of shadow finally illuminated.  Encaoua exhibition at Les Invalides in Paris from May 13 to 15, 2022 & online from April 29th to May 20th, 2022

    'A very beautiful painting, rich of shivers and enchantments (...) a synthetical representation in which we can "see" the sounds in their free and irregular manifestation'. Cosimo Strazzeri Art Criticism, History of Literature

    Sandra ENCAOUA I Judaica Series

    26 Feb 2021 – 26 Feb 2022

    'Out of everything that I have been given to look at from before, during and after the holocaust, from a pictorial  point of view (...) Sandra Encaoua's work touched me more than any other - even commemorative commissions. Her work is so extremely sensitive and so strongly expressive that I became emotional. This is a great gift coming from a true artist." (24/04/2016) Frederic Gozlan Filmmaker (Documentaries 'Auschwitz'-Poland, 'ReiseAusweis', 'Terezin'...), Author and director ('Kaddish', Frange festival Theater. Acco. Israel)
