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.
American, b. 1982
