Sean Alistair is a queer self-taught Canadian born artist currently residing in the Bavarian countryside of Germany.
His art is a visual journal where he discusses the intense impact of how seemingly mundane or innocuous experiences can be to someone who is not only queer but also bipolar.
Each of Sean’s Mixed Media works are completely sewn and created by hand over hundreds of hours and focus on material exploration, found objects, recycling and reworking old paintings.
Due to his mental illness Sean experiences prolonged periods of mania which he has learned to utilize as a way to keep his concentration in order to finish his works.
What is most important to him is that his works live and change with the light, angle or distance they are viewed at.
