Samuel Leopold

Born in New York

Samuel Leopold was born in New York, but grew up along the banks of the Mississippi in New Orleans, Louisiana. Surrounded by a city of rich culture, unique architecture, and many talented individuals, it is easy to understand why Leopold decided to pursue the creative arts.

Throughout Leopold’s early years he always was drawing—usually something surreal and architectural. At the age of nine he was introduced to the medium of oil paints, and by his 11th birthday Leopold had accumulated several awards in local arts shows.

Leopold's first gallery appearance occurred at age 15 at the prestigious Gasperi Gallery in the French Quarter. In 1988, Leopold competed against numerous other high-school artists in southeast Louisiana to win a place in the United States Capitol Building, through the 6th Annual Congressional Art Competition. His painting hung in the Capitol for two years. In 2005, Leopold was a finalist in the worldwide Hyogo International Competition of Painting 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 75 of his paintings are in collections in locations including Berlin, Geneva, Jerusalem, New York, and Tokyo.

Leopold's artistic process has had few changes in his 25 years of painting, however his sources for ideas and subjects continue to expand with his experiences.

Leopold now lives in Chicago where he has found a home for his artistic talents at several galleries.
