Try and keep up with Sam here:
Sam Bloor is a visual artist from Perth, Western Australia. Bloor’s background as a traditional signwriter informs his use of text provocations and large-scale public artworks. Blurring the line between his trade and artistic careers Bloor intends to play with existing perceived notions of value and labour.
Bloor has exhibited in a number of group and solo shows both nationally and internationally including the sold-out Birth and Death of a Mountain (2020) at KolbuszSpace, Totem In Tribute (2016) in Edinburgh, UK, the Fremantle Print Award (2016/18), Rotterdam Photo festival (2019), NL, and was commissioned to produce a major public work as part of the 2022 Perth festival program. Bloor has won multiple awards and is represented in both private and public collections.
