Daliah Ammar creates hyperrealistic paintings that embody a feeling of teen angst. Her moody portraits depict candid and intimate scenes and will make one ponder about the meaning of life.

Whether laying in bed or engaging in deep thought, Daliah's subjects are always mindful of their surroundings and manage to capture a viewer's gaze with ease. The 19-year old artist is based in Chicago and is of Palestinian and American descent.

Her hyperralistic paintings are inspired by her own life experiences and are self-reflective and self-aware. They embody feelings of vulnerability and are displayed in dramatic hues of violet and deep blue that appear dimly lit. With a BFA at the Art Institute of Chicago's school, the artist is just beginning what is promised to be a successful arts career.
