Gina Samson

Samson’s artwork is influenced by the rich cultural heritage and vibrant colors of the Caribbean, as well as the New York City urban environment. After showing interest in the arts at a young age, she enrolled in her High School’s art program and participated in shows and competitions. She regularly exhibits in the New York Metropolitan area, and her work is featured in several corporate and private collections. In her view, artwork reflects the importance of creation and imagination in everyone’s life. Working primarily in painting, collage and drawing, she aims to create works that incite reflection, and bring to the viewer an appreciation of the pride, resilience and cultural achievements of the African diaspora. Currently her work explores the interplay of music and the visual arts.
