Sam Halstead lives and works in Cornwall. He studied a BA(Hons) in Fine Art (Sculpture) at Norwich School of Art 2005-8, where he was awarded the Jesse Griffiths award for figurative drawing. Following that he attended The Drawing Year at The Prince's Drawing School (now the Royal Drawing School) in 2009. Halstead is a sculptor, working in plaster, wax and cast metal, but sees observational drawing as a backbone to his practice. He has exhibited regularly with the 20 group in Norwich, in the Bergh Apton Sculpture Trail and at Sladmore Contemporary Gallery in London. Sam teaches at the Royal Drawing School (The Young Artist & Public Programme) and the The Foundation Year in London.
