Samuel Wildman was born in 1986, on the second floor of a small bungalow in Seattle WA. His father wanted to be there but got stuck in traffic. His only other notable achievement occurred in 2009 when he graduated from RISD, broke and marginally literate, with a BFA in sculpture. He has shown at numerous DIY spaces in Seattle and Portland, including Airbnbs, truck beds, a Canadian spa, and a chicken coop. In 2014 Wildman exhibited work at the Boise Art Museum and co-created Be Vintage with artist Eric Olson, a project sponsored by City of Seattle and exhibited at the Washington State Convention Center. Currently he is preparing work for an exhibition at Wieden+Kennedy (Portland, OR) and the Hedreen Space (Seattle, WA). In 2016 he will be doing a five-month residency followed by an exhibition at MAD Art (Seattle, WA) with artist Gail Grinnell. Wildman’s work has been mentioned in Sculpture Magazine, the Stranger, and City Arts Magazine. He is currently the only uncool part of Portland.
