Sam Orosz (b.1991) is a printmaking artist currently living and working in St. Paul, Minnesota. Through intaglio printmaking, mixed media, and drawing, Orosz creates contemporary landscapes that explore open space and the condition of environments while questioning human connection with the natural world. His artwork is inspired by his personal experiences and exploration of the Great Plains and American West and his landscapes both show the fragility of the natural world while contemplating our presence and impact on the spaces around us.
Orosz Received a BFA with an emphasis in printmaking, drawing, and painting from the University of Minnesota Duluth, School of Fine Arts, in 2014. His artwork has been exhibited nationally in galleries and museums and has been collected nationally and internationally including the permanent collection of the Minnesota Museum of American Art and private collections in the United States, Europe, and China. In 2015 he was awarded the 2015-2016 Jerome Emerging Printmakers Residency at Highpoint Center for Printmaking. Since then, Sam has won numerous awards through the Minnesota State Fair fine arts exhibition and has recently returned from an artist residency at Grey Hand Press, in Brisbane, Australia. Orosz is currently a Co-op member at Highpoint Center for Printmaking in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where he continues to explore the land through print.
