Samuel is a multidisciplinary art practictionist born in Shanghai based in London. His research-based art practice revolves around biopolitics, diaspora, queer, and identity representation by exploring medium such as photography, installation, and film. Currently he is pursuing an MA degree at the department of Visual Anthropology.
First Zine Melancholy finished in early 2018 (also shown at Offprint London 2019), exploring urban culture in his hometown Shanghai. It also implies the current situation that the country is going through a rapid social transition, and it raises questions over human activities during urbanisation in the modern era, conveying a sense of melancholy.
