I created these pieces in an ongoing series of bold, colorful faces. I see these characters as strong personalities that wear their influences and social standings on their faces, like other cultures where a lot of communication takes place through appearance. Branding, marking, color, lines, and expression can all represent an identity, a point-of-view, or a statement.

The reason for the titles of each piece has to do with the year it was created and the number of paintings I made that year. And this number is added to my artist's work name, Samnation. I don't want to give these paintings individual names because I don't want to guide the audience to my interpretation. I want the viewer to bring their own meaning.

I enjoy creating oil paintings of faces, using bright colors to express a bold personality. I see these characters as strong personalities that wear their influences and social standings on their faces. In most cultures, a lot of communication takes place through appearance. Branding, marking, color, lines, and expression can all represent an identity, a point-of-view, or a statement. These paintings are a more imaginative take on those markings.
