Footnotes

  • Samson was born and raised in a township in the Mthatha area of the Eastern Cape, a region of rolling hills. He claims that the beauty of the natural landscape developed an appreciation for the aesthetic from an early age. In his 20s, Samson joined an artist collective in Cape Town, Isibane. This was formative in developing his professional career, offering support, resources and materials. He spent four years honing his skills under the guidance of the collective.

    Devotion to his craft still underpins his practice. He keeps a house as a "formality", but spends most of his time in the studio. His quest for virtuosity is driven by his desire to provide homegrown inspiration for Africa's next generation of artists:

    "I want you to look at my work and think, 'That's exquisite, that's incredible, I am blown away - and I know it is completely African'". (The artist in an interview with the New York Times, Feb 2020).
