About the Work
Overlapping shapes and patterns in shades of dove grey and black are arranged like a puzzle in this dynamic canvas by Sylvain Louis-Seize. Louis-Seize drew critical attention in 2005 for his dynamic and imaginative use of form and colour. His paintings then and now draw inspiration from his years in Montreal where graffiti art played a central role in the visual culture. In his new body of work, Louis-Seize boldly reinvents the dazzling colour, spray, lines and patterns infusing them with symbolic meanings and emotion. Louis-Seize's artworks including large scale commissions are held in private and corporate collections in the UK, the US, Canada and Europe. A catalogue "Sylvain Louis-Seize, Resolution" (2019) is available.
