Sandra Encaoua, Artist painter

Sandra ENCAOUA is a French artist born in Paris in 1974. Fascinated by nature and raw elements, she creates in her paintings a changing & free universe where she strives to touch the truth of the subject, to perceive its essence.

His current work focuses on the transmission of emotions through large abstract portraits done in oil and spray.  Each of his paintings has a particular and precise meaning. It is the emotion that interests her. To capture it. To catch it. To share it, and to make resonance with the other... All the works, large oils and watercolors, are accompanied by a sentence, an excerpt from a book that illuminates the visitor on the work.


Sandra won the City of Pembroke Pines painting 1st prize in 2022, the Wellington Art Society painting 1st prize in 2021 (USA) and a 2020 Miami Art Grant by Locus Project & the Andy Warhol Foundation (New York, USA). She received the 2018 People Choice Award from the Wellington Art Society (USA) and was honored with the 2017 'Arts-Sciences-Lettres' medal by the Académie des Arts-Sciences-Lettres de Paris in France.

Her work is regularly exhibited in the US and Europe. She is a member of the Taylor Foundation (Paris, France), the Jewish Art Salon (New York, USA) and the Wellington Art Society (Florida, USA). Her works are listed on the Art market since 2012 (Artprice / Drouot).
