Samuel Richardson (b. 1998) is a Richmond-based painter.

Binding the divides between heaven and hell, uncertainty unveils itself in the hallucinatory realms of Richardson's work. Philosophies of unearthly phenomena are dissected and reshaped to portray a modern world in which non-human coexistence becomes imminent.
