ARTIST STATEMENT
I wish to document every artist in the city through my medium, photography. I will be doing this on digital and film format. The reason for this documentary is my belief that there are so many amazing artists in the city whose stories aren't told and are not celebrated enough. I hope to be able document within the Art Commons space or in spaces convenient for the artist. Their stories and photos will be exhibited within the space. 

ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

Currently a ROZSA Arts Management Program (RAMP) student where he is learning about "Transformational Leadership in Arts." He is a growing voice in the arts community in the city and he finds himself contributing through other platforms such as Calgary Arts Development, Immigrant Council for Arts Innovation (ICAI), Action Dignity and WOEZO Africa Music and Dance Theatre. In the time he has been an artist, Samuel has learned to appreciate the small things of life that make up the beautiful world we live in.
