Beep Beep is proud to present "Retrospective | 1989 - Present" a look back at the last 24 years of work from Atlanta artist Sam Parker.
An extremely prolific artist with a mixed background of influences and interest sets, Sam Parker has already managed to create what most artists work their whole lives to achieve. A jack of all trades and constant experimenter, Sam has created drawings, paintings, graffiti, sculpture, collage, tattoos, and mixed media works with a simple approach and almost effortless mastery. With this in mind, we asked Sam if we could showcase a retrospective of his work over the last 20 years with a variety of work highlighting this diverse artist's many creations.
"Retrospective" showcases works from Sam Parker's developmental stages as an artist all the way up to present day. The gallery will contain over 20 large works spanning his career. Along with the main work, we'll have images of his personal history including his work in graffiti and tattooing as well interviews with Sam, books by the artist, and other supplementary materials. With this show, we want to give a comprehensive view of Sam Parker's influences and achievements and a perspective on the life of an artist who cannot stop creating.
