Samar F. Zia is a visual artist and art writer, originally from Pakistan. Through her art practice, she endeavours to activate the imagination of her audience, provoke thought and bring communities closer together. Representation for marginalised people is a great concern for her and the reason for being a member of the Alumni Of Colour Association (AoCA) of the University of the Arts London (UAL). She also freelances as an independent curator and art tutor.
As a former resident of Fitzrovia, the chapel is meaningful to her in more ways than one. Besides finding the interior architecture of the chapel absolutely awe-inspiring, she feels privileged to have held her first solo exhibition in London at the Fitzrovia Chapel in 2017.
