Sam Bassett

Samuel Bassett (b. 1982) comes from Cornwall, more specifically the town of St Ives steeped in fishing and artistic heritage. His family have been there as fisherman and working on the land, mining and farming for hundreds of years and until recently he occupied a studio above his grandfathers former net loft at Porthmeor studios a few minutes walk from the Tate Gallery within the hustle and bustle. His artworks display a boundless zeal, sharp humour and honest pathos made with creative, experimental, freedom. His language of mark-making varies from raw sweeping gestures to draughtsman-like drawn or sgraffitto schematics.
