Sam3–Anonymity is a voice for all of us

In the tradition of other artists like Blu and Banksy, Sam3 keeps his true identity hidden from the public. His giant city murals are awesome silhouettes of surreal figures portraying the most imaginative of scenarios. Much of the work calls for some thought about society with animals controlling humans or our cars becoming coffins. There is nothing like some thought provoking murals to fill giant ugly walls in cities.

Sam3 and the others like him remain anonymous. The mystery adds to the allure of their artwork by keeping the public guessing. Perhaps their commentary on society speaks for all of us when they don’t put a personality with the creator. It is as though their work comes from a common voice instead of being confined to a single artist’s perspective.
