Robert Sample

April 30, 2013

Robert Sample is a British contemporary painter whose works explore humanity in its extremes, focusing on what is often overlooked. Though his art has a strong visual reference to older styles and artists, it is actually rooted in the present, as Sample skillfully combines some elements seen in street art with contrasting traditional techniques.
