Samuel (he/him/they) is a multidisciplinary visual artist and LGBTQ+ rights advocator who was born in Shanghai based in London. He recently graduated from Goldsmiths (University of London) with a master’s degree in Visual Anthropology. He was trained as a research-based visual practitioner focusing on biopolitics, diaspora, and queer identity by exploring mediums such as photography, film, and installation during his undergraduate education at London College of Communication (UAL). The volunteer work for LGBTQ+ NGOs opens a door for him to get closer to his community and a more practical understanding in humanities and social movements.
