Sam Weber

There's a calm, frozen quality to Sam Weber's art, like a pond of ice, but just underneath that ice is a scene of intriguing terror. Sam finds beauty in blood and vacant stares. His work is a muted wash of monochrome colors with slashes of detailed branches or hair running through like Japanese brush strokes. A bit disturbing but you can't tear your eyes away.

Sam Weber is married to the fabulous artist, Jillian Tamaki.
