Looking to add a bold splash of color to your life? Check out the lively work of Toronto-based artist Sam Shuter! Inspired by powerful risk-takers and driven by vibrant colors, her original, distinctive and collectible pieces combine contemporary energy with timeless trends.
Originally from Montreal, Samara Marlee Shuter is known for her striking paintings of men’s suits. Her large-scale pieces fuse stylized figurative work with intricately abstracted patterns. The result is unexpectedly powerful and playful; with strong colors, bold linework, and energetic wittiness.
Attracted to symmetry and color, her current work displays themes of purpose, productivity and power, making it the perfect addition to any Mad Men-inspired room, while offering a fresh, cutting-edge update on the classic style.
She’s made a name for herself working with companies such as Harry Rosen, Timberland Shoes, Facebook, Saks Fifth Avenue and the Toronto International Film Festival, and has displayed her artwork at The Rockefeller Centre. Another reason to support her work? She contributes regularly to charity, most recently auctioning her American flag-themed piece entitled “1776” to support The Bronx Museum of the Arts via Paddle 8. Shuter currently lives and works in Toronto, Canada, but displays her artwork globally.
