Sam Schonzeit divides his time between Marfa and Stockholm. His father is the well-known photorealist painter Ben Schonzeit, and Sam grew up in Soho, NYC in the 70s and has been surrounded by and produced art his entire life. He has a BA in Religious Studies from Cornell University and an MA in Architecture from the University of Texas.
Schonzeit has had a long-time practice of making postcard sized paintings that he has sold in global boutiques including Dover St. Market in Tokyo and the Whitney Museum Shop in New York, as well as in Los Angeles, London, Stockholm and, of course, at Marfa Book Company. His larger works have been shown at a number of galleries in Texas and Europe.
