Samson Contompasis is a multi disciplinary artist from Upstate NY.
This word exemplifies the severity and intensity at which I create my work. Bridging the gap between painting, sculpture and performance to create relics that illustrate the massive to subtle. Self-schooled and studied I work with many different mediums. Having spent years developing projects and methods, I am only limited by the amount of materials that I have to work with for the countless projects I have ready to create
There is a line drawn between action and fate that I have chosen to ignore….a line replaced by universal truths of hard work and perseverance. I am looking to introduce the viewer to an entirely new world of creation all together.
Self studied-Life forged.
