Lucas Samaras is an artist from greece born in 1936. Samaras previously worked in painting, sculpture, and performance art, before beginning work in photography. ed room environments that contained elements from his own personal history. His “Auto-Interviews” were a series of text works that were “self-investigatory” interviews. The primary subject of his photographic work is his own self-image, generally distorted and mutilated. He has worked with multi-media collages, and by manipulating the wet dyes in Polariod photographic film to create what he calls “Photo-Transformations.

Samaras has created many sculptures based on chairs, i find them really interesting to look at.
