Mixed media artist Sean Mahan paints nostalgic and dreamy art on wood. The subjects of his paintings are shown standing in front of sewing machines, record players, and similar objects, working on tasks that seem outdated in today’s world. His aim is to show characters as indifferent and intent at the same time. With his paintings, Mahan creates a dreamy and melancholic universe that reminds us of the simpler times in the past.
“Sean Mahan is a social realist figurative painter 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,” we read on his website.
