Biography, Exhibitions, & Newsletter

The element of verbalization of explaining what’s in the picture, what you feel about it, I think is very futile because if it isn’t in the picture, what the hell are you talking about. – Ansel Adams


SP Corrupt With A Mason JarSean Pete is a west coast artist with defiance of dedication to a sole medium. He utilizes Oil, Acrylic, Watercolor, Gouache, Papercut, Photography, Sculpture, and whatever materials it takes to convey a vision.  Initially he pursued a path of video production with fine art as hobby, but as he explored cinematic composition, he drifted into the realm of exploring visual harmony and dissonance.
