Originally from Seoul, South Korea, Samantha Wall immigrated to the United States as a child and comes from a multiracial background. Operating from within this framework, her drawings embody the experience of navigating transcultural identity. Wall’s art is characterized by her unique approach to traditional drawing techniques combined with a contemporary vernacular that reflects her understanding of the world around her.
