Sam Kirk

Sam Kirk

Sam Kirk is a multidisciplinary artist and muralist with national and international experience in developing public installations and programs that inspire pride and recognition for marginalized communities. Her work explores culture, identity, and politics that have formed a society for generations. Her vibrant color palette, intricate line-work, and multi-toned figures reveal a world where differences are valued. A multi-racial, queer woman born and raised on the South Side of Chicago, her paintings and murals combine nostalgic city scenes from her childhood and travels around the world. She has collaborated with many notable companies and brands such as WBEZ, US Women’s Soccer, Chicago White Sox, and AT&T among many others. Last year, the city of New York, installed her artwork around an entire city block in the center of Times Square as part of their World Pride 2019 celebration. She was featured in O Magazine and Forbes for the work she continues to do to spark dialogue around topics of equality and visibility for women, communities of color and the LGBTQIA+ community.
