SEEN, also known as the “Godfather of Graffiti,” began lettering New York subway cars in the 70’s and gained worldwide recognition in the 80’s for his bright, colorful reimagining of mass-media cartoon characters. SEEN creates from his gut; he approaches his work with creative freedom deriving inspiration from simply enjoying and observing life. He was lived and worked in New York and France.
