Samuel Leopold Artist Bio:
Samuel Leopold was born in 1969 and grew up in New Orleans along the banks of the Mississippi. It is easy to see the influence of the city's rich culture, unique architecture, and many creative and talented individuals in his artwork. At the age of nine, he was introduced to oil paints, and, by his eleventh birthday, he had accumulated several awards in local arts shows. Leopold's first gallery appearance was at the French Quarter's prestigious Gasperi Gallery when he was only fifteen years old. Just one year later, Leopold competed against numerous high-school artists from throughout southeast Louisiana in the 6th Annual Congressional Art Competition. His winning painting hung in the United States Capitol Building for two years. After ranking in several more North American competitions, Leopold went on to become a finalist in the 10th Hyogo International Competition of Painting. His painting exhibited at Hyogo Prefectural Museum of Art, in Kobe, Japan. Since 1987, Leopold has exhibited his work in more than 50 competitions and galleries across the country and around the world. Presently, more than 100 of his paintings are in collections in locations such as Berlin, Geneva, Jerusalem, Paris, and Tokyo.
