Sam Pedicelli is a contemporary artist based in Toronto, working in a variety of craft-based media. Her work considers our relationships with those around us, human, object, or otherwise, employing the aesthetic of the diorama through small-scale installation. The figures illustrate strangely familiar scenes that view contemporary culture through both a cynical and comical lens, exploring the question of sameness amongst species through the display of animalistic bodies donning recognizably human features.
Sam graduated with distinction from OCAD University in 2015 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts and is a recipient of the Mrs W.O. Forsyth award.
Sam was accepted as an Artist-in-Residence at Harbourfront Centre in 2015.
