The painter Merita Selimi (Spahija) was born in Shkodra, in 1967. Her childhood, together with the magic of colors, was also surrounded by the musical sounds of the 7 instruments that her father used to play after work. Her visual language is the graphic, which makes the subject more sensitive to the others. She is also more attracted by the black and white technique.
Her talent and love for painting was inspired by the magical tales of her grandmother and the black and white picture of Marubi.Among her many other paintings, the most famous ones are the ones included in the cycle called “the Family”.
Selimi is one of the best contemporary Albanian artists.
