Not just any “Bedroom Posters”, the works of Iranian artist Sam Samiee include poetic and figuratively evocative paintings and sparsely-lined drawings exploring themes unconfined by bedroom spaces. Brimming with a human vitality, the brush stroked images are trailed with influences from Tehran and Amsterdam. Spreading his warm enthusiasm as he engages between the two cities, we count Sam as one of our dearest contributors. The accretion of acrylic works – depicting male subjects and traversing notions of masculinity, femininity, desire and sexuality leaves visitors with an inrush of scenery at art exhibitions that are both indulging and immersive. And he has the accolades to showcase for it: awarded The Royal Award for Modern Painting in 2016.
