Artist Statement 

What if everyone from the day they were born had one piece of paper assigned to them and for each experience they had a drawing was made, one on top of the other, creating a complete visual impression of the complexity of human existence?

Abi Joy Samuel (born 1993) is a London based expressionist figurative artist. Working in a multitude of layers, rubbing back and working over, Abi goes on a spiritual journey to understand the temporary nature of our existence, whilst their mediums of choice (charcoal and pastel on paper), symbolise fragility and acceptance.
