About Samoa

 
 
  • Biography

    Samoa is a man of many stories, few words, and zero inhibitions. At different times he has been a performance artist, a musician, a clothing designer, and a painter and has also been all at once. He sincerely chartered each path with no experience, and no doubt and mastered each entirely on his own. Art is Samoa’s expression, not just in the sense of the mediums he chose to communicate through, but the voice he learned to speak through. His internal world is a jumble of images, impressions, and associations and art are how he relays his particular truth.

    In all of Samoa’s work, and in all mediums, he pushes our comfort and awakens recognition we had long forgotten about.

     His performance art expresses thoughts that we aren’t able to put words to, his clothing is the ideas we all know that we don’t say, his music is what we say and want to hear again, and his paintings are feelings, thoughts, and understandings that words don’t do justice to. Yet, each painting has something to say.
