Lo­ca­tion: Paraguay Web: www.sama­rayaart.com Email: sama­rayaart@gmail.com MEDIA: Pho­to­shop, Pho­tog­ra­phy, mixed media Born and liv­ing in the “poi­soned heart” of South Amer­ica, Sa­muel has worked for clients such as The Seat­tle Opera House, CCP Games, Centipede Press and many oth­ers. His art has also ap­peared in the pres­ti­gious Spec­trum: The Best in Con­tem­po­rary Fan­tas­tic Art an­nual.

His latest se­ries, Car­cosa, was inspired by the sem­i­nal work of Robert W Cham­bers’ The King in Yel­low. “The work pre­sented here is in a thresh­old be­tween mem­ory and dream, paint­ing and pho­tog­ra­phy,” he says. “Sym­bol­ism is cre­ated by the jux­ta­po­si­tion of al­chem­i­cal con­cepts and Cham­bers’ mag­num opus.”
