Former graffiti artist Sean Flood paints the world as he sees it, retaining the dynamism and physical mark-making from his earlier practice. “My artistic style is fueled by graffiti,” says Flood, “I [take] that same energy and [apply] it to the canvas.” Flood studied at the Art Institute in Boston, where he developed a signature style of oil painting and energetic cityscapes. These emphasize the framework of both the paintings and the structures they depict, creating expansive spaces out of back streets or rooftops.
