About Samuel

Samuel Webster is a freelance artist working in multiple mediums. He was born in Sydney, Australia in the mid 80s and has spent the last few years living and working in Tuscany, Italy.

Samuel was the founder and  Editor-in-Chief of online arts journal, Mood of Monk, and now has multiple projects under his belt including two books of poetry (Protogenos and Silencing the Dictator), collaboration with world-renowned choreographer Rafael Bonachela (2 One Another), and various other independent projects.

I met Samuel first through the poetry of his writing before I met him personally, but there was an immediate recognition of a remarkable spirit… I am in awe of the way in which he can capture the physical art of dance, the aural art of music and grasp inner meaning which he effortlessly translates into words. It is such a gift.

Forget the tortured artist. Webster is a profound talent, but clearly optimistic and happy

Having already collaborated with one of Australia’s pre-eminent Artist Directors at such an early stage in his career, Webster has a bright future ahead.

Haunting and powerful in its intimacy, [Ofelia voleva soltanto nuotare] holds a mirror to the ills of a society failing to stand up for the safety and rights of all women, and a voyeuristic media hungry to blame the victim.

[Protogenos] is a unique concept which typifies why Webster is so successful at what he does.
