Annam Butt; Born June 3rd 1988 is British Pakistani and is a classically trained artist from London. She trained in the methods of the old masters at the London Fine Art studios where she also teaches part time. Her work explores themes of the Orient, still-lives with narrative and figurative work often all painted from life. Collecting macabre objects of curiosity and antiquity she uses these objects to build narrative in her work.
Annam was consecutively awarded the De Laszlo scholarship in 2018-2019 to help aid her exploration in her craft, it is through the scholarship that she discovered the works of The Orientalists which sparked her obsession with representation of all kinds in her work. Her preferred medium is Oil paints and charcoal but is not limited to them.
