artist statement

I love working on raw-unprimed canvas, which I throw around, scuff up, step on and/or use to sop up spilt coffee. Then it gets stapled to a wall where I start with drawing materials and loosely abstract a place or idea from my memory. Or just allow music to inspire me.


Next comes loose-gestured paint strokes and additional drawing materials. I build up layer after layer of texture, marks, lines, color and shape.

artist bio

As a lifelong artist, Samuel Perry is always looking for the next opportunity to translate their everyday experiences into artistic expressions. Since 2014, they have joined the San Diego art community and are gaining increasing acclaim.


Their approach and output are constantly evolving as they hone their personal style. However, currently focusing on abstract, they work hard to ensure they do not repeat themselves. No matter what, Samuel approaches each work with complete enthusiasm and total dedication.

Their passion for connecting personal history and significance through visual artwork drives their love to create and share on canvas. Samuel's work has been included in juried exhibitions in San Diego, Orange and Los Angeles county, and is included in personal collections around the nation.

Requiring frequent doses of sunshine, Samuel lives and is based in Southern California - living with his partner and two dogs: Morris and Bleu.
