Jonah Samson

Jonah Samson is a self-taught artist who has exhibited nationally and internationally. He presented his first solo exhibition with Macaulay & Co. Fine art in 2015 and his exhibition Another Happy Day (2013) at Presentation House was listed as one of the top 10 shows that season by Canadian Art magazine. Other exhibitions include Otherworldly at the Musée Eugène Leroy, France and the Museum of Arts and Design, New York, and Unearthed at Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts in the U.K. Samson creates work that merges photographic, filmic and painterly processes. Absurdist theatre and literature are often referenced in his evocation of the bizarre and offbeat. He currently lives in Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia.
