Belfast artist Samuel Kennedy obtained his Masters degree from St. Andrews University, specialising in the History of Art and now works as an artist in Belfast, outside the mainstream.
Heavily influenced by the Fauvist and Symbolist movements of the early 20th century, his work is vibrant and colourful, highly stylised and incorporates symbols from many artistic traditions.
An exploration of the visionary experience provides Samuel’s main theme in these works, with particular reference to the internal interpretation of the symbols that surround us. This inner world that we all experience is termed, by Samuel, as the Internal Celestial.
