O. L. Samuels

O.L. Samuels was known for carving figures and animals with a sense of the fantastical. He painted unusual surfaces and was known to apply materials to give his art flash.
When he was young he worked as a laborer in fields in the South. He later moved to NYC and became a prize fighter. Towards the end of his life he became a preacher as his home served as a place of worship.
