Stuart Sampson

Booth 203

Stuart Sampson (Citizen Potawatomi) creates works that reflect his love for his culture, taught to him by his grandfather. He specializes in portraits that are highly colorful, and expressive. Known for his use of bright color for backgrounds and subdued gradients for facial details. Frequently painting on wood panels so hints of the exture can show through between the brush marks. This adds another interesting element to his works. His style also includes using black, white, and grey to capture the faces for his subjects with great sensitivity and expression.
