UK based artist | environmentalist. I go by the artist name 'samu' which is a word from Japanese Zen Buddhism that traditionally means 'to work mindfully'. I apply this meditative technique to create bold, colourful, abstract work inspired by organic forms and colours extracted from my day to day life. When painting, I use only what I call 'good karma materials'. This meaning sustainable materials that are good for the environment, cruelty-free (no unnecessary animal stuff) This year I'd like to paint large murals and collaborate with more like-minded artists and brands.
