About

This mixed media painting by, Mendel Samayoa, is part of his “Literary” series is based on poetry by Paolo Guinea, Samayoa employs pages of Guinea’s poetry into the canvas of his oil paintings converting the words into images. .This is original work, signed lower right. Painted on canvas board, size is framed and ready to hang. Samayoa’s work is driven by his background in film-making, theater and architecture. His brushstrokes bend light into shadows while creating a stage for the canvas to come alive. There is musicality and performance in his work, at times a serene melody and others a darker deeper base.
