About the Piece

This print was a combination of collage elements to form the final piece. The inspiration for this print came from my long walks at dusk during summer evenings within the county-side of Kildare. The bright colours represent a sense of calmness and prosperity. 

About the Artist

Seán is recent graduate of University College Cork with a masters in secondary school teaching. He describes himself as an Artist teacher. In his artwork, he likes to capture the beauty in mundane objects and places. His work is based on combined materials such as car steel through what he understood to be of the Male Vernacular. Screen-print allows Seán to reference car culture and nostalgia, as well as the sense of a journey. It allows sean to make the illusion of movement on paper, whilst distorting the image. Seán uses bright colours to reference a sense of play and the advertisements that appeared on big billboards and newspapers within the 80s and 90s. His Artwork includes elements of automobile language, vinyl, spray paint, glass, photography, metal, maps, air fix and structural parts, all being a direct reference to the car industry as a whole. This adds up to much more than the simple process of getting to A to B. His work evokes prospects of escape from the weight of collective and material responsibilities.
