Where'd the Wild Things Go is the latest solo exhibition by San Francsico artist, Sam Flores, and is comprised of acrylic and aerosol paintings on canvas, pencil drawings on paper, mixed media wall sculptures, and a projection based installation with neon signage.
Flores' work is whimsical, yet fuses realistic styles and elements with animated characters and objects. His subjects resemble children coming of age, shedding naivety as they embark on their paths in the "real world." There is an obvious sense of adventure and curiosity among Sam's subjects that, over the years, have become well traveled, both geographically and culturally. And wherever they go, animals tend to follow.
