Of A Kind Show



For those in Toronto, I have some old and new paintings for sale and on the walls at Of A Kind Vintage and Vinyl store! There's going to be a party for it on the 28th of February and it would be rad to see you there! The work is already up and will continue to be so after the event as well if you can't make it that night.

If you continue after the jump you'll see the work that's up and their price so if you have an interest but are unable to attend you can make some inquiries. To those interested in purchasing prints, do not hesitate to send me an email at seanislewis at gmail.com about what specific piece you're interested in! A new website is almost complete and soon all this information will be readily accessible there. Thanks for the interest and patience!

An Unfinished Work


I've been working on this the past month and I think it's the largest personal piece I've done so far. The wood had a coating on it that made the paint react in a way I wasn't used to. It made blending a little smoother but it also gave the paint a more translucent quality that I found really frustrating.

This is a scene depicting my conflicted mentality with painting. In trying to encapsulate the beauty of the natural world I'm actively destroying it with all the toxic substances, chemical processing and shipping of art supplies painting requires. I feel really guilty about that.

Popguru


This is a poster I just completed for Popguru’s 15 anniversary concert. First digital piece I’ve done in a long time and it was a fun experiment, especially playing around with the type.
