Samu Carvajal

Samu Carvajal

Born: 1987

Hometown: Santiago

Based in: Sydney, Australia.

“Just like the silence between the notes sparks music, I believe the mystery unfolds in the space connecting the artwork and the observer. All these visual manifestations are dimensions in which we can recognise ourselves” - Samu Carvajal.

Through deep questioning and observation, alongside his studies on human creativity and education, Samu Carvajal constructs an individual and authentic style that takes place in the distance between psychedelic art and art brut.

Carvajal’s started his career as a commercial artist working primarily in Advertising. After a few years of prizes and successful campaigns, he decided to focus his work on encouraging observation rather than selling products.

The artist takes inspiration from the world around him, combining and recreating elements from mass media to ancient philosophy. By not naming his artworks he invites the observer to become part of the creative experience.

Samu works mainly on paper and canvas. Usually defining a concept for a collection and then employing flow techniques to complete his artworks.
