Brooklyn-based fine artist and illustrator Sam Weber (featured in Hi-Fructose Vol. 13) creates paintings of feminine figures that are simultaneously soft and powerful. Using a combination of traditional and digital painting techniques, Weber endows his figures with an unearthly glow that adds a supernatural dimension to his work. Weber’s characters are compelling with their emotive facial expressions and body language, whether pensive and thoughtful or self-assured and strong. Take a look at some of Weber’s recent works below.
