Samson Shepheard-Walwyn is a painter based in London. Samson formerly studied his foundation at City & Guilds Art School, BA Fine Art at Kingston School of Art and is currently working towards his Masters of Fine Art at Central Saint Martins.
He has taken part in group shows, had his work shown by the BBC and a written interview published by RAIN magazine.
His work explores the themes of melancholy, solemness and loneliness; what it means to have freedom and the constraints and isolation with which it coexists. Currently he is using the symbol of a bird alongside mythological traits to investigate the ego. The broader motif is the tender feeling of a metaphorical 'homesickness' or need to return to a non-human state as well as a continued expression that there is nothing necessarily to express, often presented by utilising the idea of a broken narrative.
