Samuel graduated from CSULB with a degree in ceramics. He said he chose this concentration because he has a background with working with ceramics. He is originally from central california.
His art is pretty unique because it is interchangeable. Many of his works are replicas of human busts, but with no heads. In place of heads, he uses toys. They are interchangeable because many of this art pieces, although it may not seem like it, can be switched into one another.
I enjoyed the sculptures, especially their sizes. They were very large and took up a lot of space; however, I did not feel a connection to them as I did with previous artist work.
