Sam Bean is a visual artist, writer and musician.
Originally from the East Coast, Bean attended a magnet arts high school before crossing the country to expand her studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara. After working in social justice writing, an opportunity to help open an art gallery brought her to Chicago, where she currently resides.
Bean takes an interdisciplinary approach to her work, lifting borders between visual art, music and writing. With a style that reflects her interest in street art, Bean’s dynamic compositions and frequent social underpinnings welcome the wandering eye and provoke the visiting mind.
