George W. Bush Debuts New Paintings Of Dogs, Friends, Ghost Of Iraqi Child That Follows Him
Sam Friedman is an artist whose work we’ve always been appreciative of. In anticipation of his show at Kinfolk’s new space tonight (4/18), we dipped inside his studio to get a look at where he creates and talked a little bit of art with him.
So… when did you move into this studio?
I moved into my studio in June 2012.
Let’s say you meet a person and tell them you’re an artist. They ask you “what kind of art do you make?” You say…?
I make paintings.
When did you first consider yourself an artist? Do you remember making things as a kid?
I was always drawing and making things as a kid, and have considered myself an artist for as long I was old enough to have an identity.
Your dad helps you make canvases, right?
Yeah, he has been making a lot of my panels for over a decade now.
All of these paintings are very tropical, which is a really cool thing these days. How long have you been making paintings incorporating this trendy theme? How’d you decide on it?
Hahahaha. I try not to make them tropical, but I do paint beaches. All of mine are based off the northeast, so your not going to find a palm tree or anything. I started painting beaches in August of 2008 after watching a storm roll in to the Rockaways at sunset on my wife’s birthday. In the moment, the scene reminded me of the abstract paintings I was doing at the time, so I just took the same language and made a landscape painting the next week.
