Sahara Longe
Sahara Longe, 1994

Sahara Longe (b. 1994, London, UK) is a British artist who lives and works in London, UK. Vibrantly colored and often large in scale, Longe's portraits depict the mysteries of human psychology and social interactions. Figures in rich planes of scarlet, green and black colour stare back at the viewer with unreadable expressions, often deliberately flattened and soft-edged. Her work draws on the lost methods of Old Master painting as well as the emotional ambiguity and high colour of German Expressionism. 


Selected shows include Young Artist Partnership, London, 2019; Heart of the Matter, Gillian Jason, London, 2021 and IRL (In Real Life), Timothy Taylor, London, 2021. In October 2021, Longe attended the Great Women Artists Residency at the Palazzo Monti. Longe's work is in several important collections in the UK and the USA including those of the National Art Gallery, London, UK; the York Gallery, UK; the Simon Nixon Collection, UK; and the Lisa Goodman and Josef Vascovitz Collection, US.
