SEEN  (American, 1961) 

SEEN (American, b.1961) is considered by many to be the godfather of Graffiti Art. He first started to paint New York City subway cars during the early 1970s. Recently, SEEN has turned his love of the MTA into a series of hand-painted, limited-edition MTA New York subway maps. In addition, the artist has gone beyond two-dimensional work to explore sculpture and mixed-media works of discarded and re-used materials. SEEN's work has been exhibited all over the world, with recent solo shows at Magda Danysz Gallery in Paris, Kleerup Gallery in Stockholm, Grand Palais in Paris, The Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, Power House Arena in New York, and Stolen Space Gallery in London.
