Since graduating from the Royal Academy Schools in 2007, British artist Sam Jackson has established a national and international reputation with work being collected & exhibited in Berlin, Rome, Frankfurt, Naples, London, New York, L. A, Helsinki and Tokyo.

Faye Dowling states:
“Sam Jackson’s compulsive oil paintings explore themes of transgression and power in intimate portraits of youth culture and desire. Jackson’s text appears propelled to new, heightened voices. Symbols and statements speak of inner dialogues and desires, driving us to question the tensions between our public and private identities; and to navigate truths about intimacy, fantasy, and will.”
