About the artist: Ephraim Samson was born in 1947. He studied fine arts at the University of Santo Tomas, also worked as a "cinema cartel artist," creating movie posters and billboards. In 1970, the muse beckoned and Ephraim says "That’s when I started drawing seriously." In the period between 1976 and 2000, Samson was featured in 17 one-man-shows, participated in another 113 group exhibits, and won 11 awards. But even if the artist finds oil and pastel relatively easier, it is through watercolor paintings that he has earned glory for himself and for the country. Samson took Best of Show honors at the 42nd Lodi Art Show (sponsored by the Robert Mondavi Woodbridge Winery) and repeated the feat at the 51st annual Stockton Art League Exhibition, both in Northern California. Samson’s "Pacific Seafood" bested other entries at the Lodi Art Center Awards, and his "Where Life Begins" was awarded the plum prize, the Elsie May Goodwin Award for Excellence. Both paintings were done in watercolor. Ephraim Samson say. "Watercolor is a very challenging medium. First, it limits the size of the painting. Then, everything you do is final. In oil, you can paint over and over. In fact, the more texture you put, the better. In watercolor, once you make mistakes, you can’t paint over them. You’ll just have to get a new piece of paper and start all over again” The work of Ephraim Samson is held in many collections in the U.S and his native country the Philippines.
