Sam Wolfe Connelly is a New York-based artist, known for his paintings and illustrations that are vivid renditions of the unknown, placed into surreal yet oddly familiar domestic settings occupied by haunting figures.
Connelly was born in 1988, and raised in Northern Virginia. He became fascinated with drawing, his obsessions with nature, the world around him and things that remained unseen. This led him to pursue a degree in Illustration at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia, where he graduated in 2011.
His work utilizes a delicate lines, subdued textures and controlled colors. Each of his illustrations express a sinister poeticism that is arranged within a warm and dimly lit domestic setting. Connelly is currently based in New York. via
