Sam Kirk creates artwork to celebrate people and to inspire pride and recognition for underrepresented communities. Her work walks the viewer through various moments, focusing on a celebration of culture, discovery of identity, and the politics that we have been fighting for generations.
Kirk was born and raised on the south side of Chicago and spent most of her childhood jumping from neighborhood to neighborhood with her family. She enjoyed exploring new communities and cultures with each move, providing great satisfaction for her fascination with the differences we all posses.
Working class communities continue to be her key ingredient of inspiration. Frequently exploring new destinations, her art is a continual study, sharing her experiences in the shifting landscapes of our neighborhoods. Part autobiographical, and part fairytale, her vibrant color palette reveals profound stories laced with optimism.
