About the Artist:
Sean Mahan is a social realist figurative painter from Neptune Beach, Florida, who works with graphite and acrylic washes on wood to depict a sense of wonder about the innate warmth of the human character and its conflict with structures of power and control. Deeply interested in human nature, Mahan paints both sweet and sorrowful subjects in tension with the everyday objects of their lives, reflecting a sense of alienation. Yet, despite their isolation, a gentle and subtle warmth prevails.
In this series of paintings on vintage fabric, Mahan explores the beauty of the obsolete and the different ways in which we sever the threads to our past, for better or worse.
Sean has enjoyed creating cover artwork for the bands: Twelve Hour Turn, Floor, Daitro, Dauntless Elite, Planes Mistaken For Stars,The Gifthorse, La Peche, Low Pines, Between Two Waves, EardrumsPop and more.
