Triana Terry

Triana Terry is an exceptionally talented young artist, as well as being a much sought after actresses and performer.

Triana’s first love has always been the visual arts, her father Richard Terry, was also an artist, who owned a commercial studio in the heart of Soho. She has a Spanish mother, Celia de Lamo, a photojournalist and filmmaker.

She is inspired by human behaviour, faces and emotions. Whether it’s painting a portrait or a scenario she must immerse herself totally to take on that image.

Triana’s longstanding association with Soho influenced her first exhibition in Cork Street, ‘soholights.’ A collection of notable personalities who were happy to sit for her. The resulting portrait were astonishing, they were bold, lively and full of confidence. The brushstrokes were daring with a rich and colourful palette. Triana captured the essence of these characters with a keen eye for their distinctive charisma.

Triana Terry has also exhibited at The Saatchi Gallery, Lazarides Gallery and private members clubs.

‘Wow! It’s amazing! Thank you so much. I’m very honoured. You’re incredibly talented and I am SO touched to be your subject. Love it!’

Stephen Fry

‘Vibrant, visceral, honest, joyous, haunting, intense, your paintings are full of emotion!’

Damien Hirst


“The first time I saw Triana’s portrait of my face I almost burst into tears.She captured an aspect of my soul that I just wasn’t expecting to see. Blown away isn’t the half of it. My portrait is a huge part of my life now , and I’ll always be grateful for it. Thank you.”

Lenny .G. Henry CBE

Actor, Comedian, Writer and Presenter

“Terry’s work embodies the core values of contemporary portraiture – the ambition to capture something deeply personal, essential even, about the sitter, those effervescent qualities, mysteriously human, that somehow seem be absent in photographic equivalents. They are bold, powerful and confident.”

Nick Hackworth

Art Critic for the Evening Standard

“Triana’s art is an expression of love she creates from the heart and is inspired. Her work is beautiful, truthful and mysterious.”
