Information

Sam Drew is a Cardiff born artist, interested in painting, illustration and screen print. In here are a selection of pieces from the vast collection of scenes Drew has created around his Lumps universe, displaying a range of technique and style. The subject of these works tends to juxtapose the everyday with the incomprehensible; tasks like the weekly shop, visiting a museum, or eating ramen, take on a surreal energy in the House of Lumps – so take nothing for granted. Exploding the mundane of our world into the extraordinary detail and delirium of a Lumps day out is Drew’s stock-in-trade, leading him to produce work that is vibrant, mischievous and at times provocative.

“Welcome to the land of the Lumps. Here, grinning characters go about their daily antics – they go shopping for rainbows, beers, packaged babies, and head to the local all you can eat to feast on some luggage. With perfect yet sinister smiles pinned to their faces, some are even morphed into objects like cans, cigarettes, coffee dispensers or plant pots. It’s a strange place here, but everyone seems rather happy about it.”
