Sam Bloor is a visual artist from Perth, Western Australia. Bloor’s background as a traditional signwriter informs his use of text provocations and large-scale public artworks. Blurring the line between his trade and artistic careers Bloor intends to play with existing perceived notions of value and labour.
Bloor has exhibited in a number of group and solo shows both nationally and internationally including the sold-out Birth and Death of a Mountain (2020) at KolbuszSpace, Totem In Tribute (2016) in Edinburgh, UK, the Fremantle Print Award (2016/18), Rotterdam Photo festival (2019), NL, and was commissioned to produce a major public work as part of the 2022 Perth festival program. Bloor has won multiple awards and is represented in both private and public collections including the Art Gallery of Western Australia.
Bloor’s next major solo exhibition will be at KolbuszSpace in June 2023.
