Sam Jungkurth has been a professional New York artist for four decades, exhibiting in various galleries and cultural institutions. His talent was recognized early on. As a student he was awarded a grant from the Tyler School of Art to spend a year studying in Rome, Italy.
Jungkurth is unafraid to explore new ways of creating images. His early figurative work led him to abstract the human form, creating vital and unique shapes. After completing a rich body of abstract work he returned to natural forms with great originality and freshness. He tends to work in series, developing themes from the “Nudes in a Geometric Landscape” and “Linear Geometric Abstraction” to “Woody and Dolly.”
