SILVER SPRING, MD
“The inspiration for Tales Retold is time’s tide and the wake that it leaves behind. Barack Obama will forever be etched in our history as the first African American to hold the office. The parallels between the Roman Empire and cultural domination in its sphere of influence are telling. Will we follow the same course of ruin? The tale is yet to be told.”
Born in West Palm Beach, Florida, Preston Sampson combines the skillful use of acrylic paints and vigorous, broad brush strokes to create canvases pulsating with rhythm and movement.
His work has been featured in publications including Town & Country, Playbill, American Visions and Black Enterprise Magazine.
