Sean Norvet

Sean Norvet is an artist/illustrator born and raised in Los Angeles, CA. His paintings are usually precisely executed in oils on panels, but his style and subjects reflect the media-saturated, commercialized environment we inhabit today. His work is often deconstructive and simultaneously jarring, intense, hilarious and disturbing. His work is sometimes explosive, sometimes still, and often mashes up elegant photo-realism with two-dimensional cartoon buffoonery.
