Fine Art Painter

"My paintings reflect an evolvement and range of who I am.  They are personal, abstract, and passionately tell the story of my triumphs, heartbreaks, and love." ~ Saumolia


Saumolia Puapuaga's artwork is a personal reflection of his coming of age as a first generation Sāmoan-American. His Hawaii-inspired plein air paintings are filled with energetic brush strokes, bold colors and complex layers of detail. Infusing his work with abstract and dreamlike elements, Saumolia brings fascinating movement and emotion to his paintings.

What is plein air painting?

En plein air is a French expression for "in the open air" and refers to the practice of painting outdoors. Venturing outside allows artists to draw inspiration from the changing natural light and movement of a landscape while they paint.
