"Tivesse Sami Matar recebido à atenção merecida, seria talvez o artista surrealista mais importante do cenário das artes plásticas brasileira nesse segmento.

Portador de um desenho irretocável, e uma criatividade indescritível, Sami tem uma virtude peculiar de transmitir em suas telas diversos tipos de mensagens, ora a de protestos contra as transgressões a natureza, ou simplesmente exaltar as belezas naturais de nosso planeta, conjugando com figuras lindas de mulheres.

Se analisarmos suas pinturas, veremos sempre uma mensagem a ser interpretada pelo espectador. É o Surrealismo útil, belo e contemporâneo, de quem tem pleno domínio do que produz; é a materialização do sonho ou da imaginação do verdadeiro artista."
