Samuel Harriman (b.1992) is a British artist, currently based in Leicester.

His work  consists primarily of light, however, by using painterly processes, he combines the mediums of light installation and painting to intonate the point that the use of light is a form of painting. He uses both white wall gallery spaces and sites such as sheds or residential settings to install his work.
