SEEN (b.1961, New York) 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, Paris, France (2010); Kleerup Gallery, Stockholm, Sweden (2009); Grand Palais, Paris, France (2009); The Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh, PA (2009); Power House Arena, New York, NY (2007); and Stolen Space Gallery, London, UK (2006).
