The Spanish podcast on Samuel Lind

Samuel Lind was raised in Loíza, Puerto Rico which has been his lifelong home. His aptitude for art was identified at an early age by one of his teachers and she provided him with materials in order to motivate him to develop his talent.

He studied at the Fine Arts University in San Juan during the seventies and was fortunate enough to be the pupil of several great artists of our country such as Augusto MarÌn, Lorenz Omar and Jos È Alicea. At the beginning of his career, his works were very identified with our Puerto Rican cultural traditions, especially his beloved town of LoÌza which and he captured spontaneous scenes with serigraph printing. Lind has always felt enriched by the beauty of our natural surroundings. His universal message calls us to pause and reflect on the changes that are happening in our world.

Lind has always used diverse media and techniques to capture cultural scenes and tropical beauty. Having been raised in a coastal town where the majorityís livelihood was based on fishing, coconut, traditional food sales and agriculture with the passing of time he has continued to colorfully portray natural scenes and simple lifestyles. His vision awakens a more profound connection with nature.
