Since graduating, Sean’s bounced around the U.S. a bit, and he’s now based out of Brooklyn. He is a prolific visual and conceptual artist, writer, and publisher. He co-founded the Conceptual Oregon Performance School in Portland, and created Social Malpractice Publishing.

His website will give you a pretty good sense of his art. It includes experimental food ventures and emotionally naked sing-along renditions of hits by Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift. A regular contributor to Vice.com, taunter of James Franco, he’s developed a visual language with pop songs, google searches, performance art, installations, and stand-up.

He's back in town this week, and we'll catch up with him, along with his former PNCA professor — and our guest curator — Victor Maldonado.
