Sam Malpass – otherwise known as Badway Creative – is an accomplished artist based out of Rye Beach. Her work has taken her around the world through universities, workshops and institutes in Spain, Australia and New York.
I'll let Sam take it from here...
My wanderlust lifestyle and collection of eclectic photographs from my travels are the source of my inspiration. Everything I see, feel and experience contributes to the depth and fervor of my work. I am constantly traveling, learning and re-inventing myself through my art. I spent five years of college studying around the world. Various universities, artist communities and bars in Spain, Australia and New York molded me into the artist I am today. My continued love of perpetual exploration is easily reflected in my contrasting bodies of work. With richly saturated hues and evocative forms I aim to capture the soul and style of each subject. My liquid impressionistic brush strokes reflect my free spirited spontaneity- it is deliberate, yet borne out of the moment.
I have turned my inspirations into my business, Badway Creative. I am mainly profitable through my paintings, however, I work in many mediums- I am a muralist, photographer, yogi, student, designer; the list goes on. This is my passion, my hustle, and my artistic life, to which I am truly dedicated.
Chelsea and I recently had the pleasure of documenting Sam in her artist studio, talking about her upbringing, inspirations and favorite travel destinations.
