Biografia

Justin Samson è nato nel 1979 a Milford (Connecticut) e vive e lavora a New York. Nel 2003 consegue la laurea in Fine Arts presso la School of Visual Arts di New York.

Le sue opere di risentono l’influenza della cultura pop, dell’arte underground degli anni Ottanta e del movimento punk: la cultura del fai-da-te, la filosofia anti-sistema. Il lavoro dell’artista rappresenta una visione ironica e spregiudicata del reale, egli frantumando tabù reinventa la pittura grazie ad accostamenti nuovi e contrastanti.

Considerando l’atto creativo come inclusivo, l’opera d’arte diventa aperta, così nei suoi lavori include i detriti casuali della nostra cultura popolare e delle altre forme di comunicazione diffusa come quella del cinema, della letteratura, del fumetto, delle copertine e degli album musicali. 

Sono diverse le mostre dedicate a Justin Samson, recentemente si è tenuta presso la Neumann Wolfson Art la mostra House of Walls (2019) e la personale Anthology Being (2015) alla Kravets | Wehby Gallery di New York. Tra le collettive sono da ricordare la doppia personale Aftermodernism A perspective on Contemporary Art James Busby Justin Samson (2019) presso la Mucciaccia Contemporary di Roma e Potpourri (2018) presso la Neumann Wolfson Art di New York. Justin Samson ha partecipato a diverse fiere d’arte quali Armory Art Fair di New York e Nordic Art Fair in Svezia, le sue opere sono nelle collezioni pubbliche del Walker Art Center di Minneapolis ed il Museum of Modern Art di New York.
