Samuel is a Norfolk & Brighton based artist with a painting style that is truly unique, euphoric & mesmerising. Samuel's artwork is influenced by pop-art, art deco, psychedelia and dreamscape, this fusion of styles gives the artwork a contemporary feel yet simultaneously a sense of timelessness prevails. Samuel's paintings are vibrant stylised celebrations of the world using intense colour and psychedelic patterns to heighten the atmosphere. Large scale canvas panels enable the viewer to imagine walking into the scenes to leave reality behind.
