Samantha Thole (Utrecht, 1982) completed her training as an artist at HKU University of the Arts Utrecht in 2008, followed by a Master’s degree at the Sandberg Institute in Amsterdam. She combines the personal and the intimate with notions of social urgency and references to the philosophical and the sublime.

Her work is in several private and museum collections. She is the second living artist whose work has been included in the collection of the Dutch National Museum of Antiquities in Leiden. Through various collaborations, such as the international We_are_vessels collective or as part of the energetic occasional duo TIMM & Thole, Samantha continues to innovate herself, allowing new influences and techniques into her work.
