Bert Samples

Born, 1955 in Houston, Texas, USA

From the Black Art: Ancestral Legacy catalogue:

“Samples draws upon the richness of universal myth for his sources of inspiration in his work. A student of John Biggers, Samples studied the impact of Africa upon African-American culture while an undergraduate at Texas Southern, and incorporated this knowledge into his own painting.”
