About Sam Flores:

Fifteen years after first arriving on the West Coast from New Mexico, Sam Flores, an art school evacuee and self-taught illustrator, has established his place in the modern art movement as a master of fine art and product design. His contemporaries include Shepard Fairey (OBEY), Mike Giant, Jeremy Fish and David Choe, whose collective bodies of work have forged a pathway for a new and accessible movement within the popular art world. Flores’ artistic quality is unpretentious and provocative and demands consideration without categorization. In addition to creating original paintings, Sam Flores achieved popular recognition through clothing lines, skateboard & snowboard designs, signature home decor pieces, and a limited edition collection of vinyl toys. His artwork appears regularly in publications such as Juxtapoz, Mass Appeal, Urb and Wired Magazines, and has shown in galleries in Japan, France, Italy, Germany & Singapore, among other locations throughout the world. He has also published two books of illustrations and prints that are currently available in limited release.
