Sam Walshe is the founder of the 'Neo-Deco' style. The motifs he uses in his paintings are derived from his concern for the environment, in particular the oceans and endangered species. He depicts the fringes of our world with his unique stylization and dramatic sense of colour. He regards his paintings as his main form of communication and loves "the collusion between people and the environment".
Born in Liverpool, Walshe settled in Cornwall in the 1960's, becoming a founder member of the emerging surf scene. He is an intensely private and unpretentious artist, who allows his work to reveal his life and mind.
His work has been exhibited at the Driftwood galleries in Falmouth, Truro and Padstow.
