Seb Sweatman: Makeba II
for General Public
In the tradition of Abstract Expressionism, Seb Sweatman creates large-scale, heavily worked paintings alive with expression and movement. The artist worked to the song "Makeba" by French singer Jain as he created this piece, applying thick layers of oil paint using rollers and a tiling tool. Like the music, the painting has an exuberant sense of rhythm.
General Public, a maverick art curation and publishing company based in LA, is revolutionizing the way we think about and collect art. Founded by Portia de Rossi, an actress, art collector and art world industry disruptor, General Public makes a radical proposition: that a painting shouldn't be enjoyed by just one collector, but should be available to all. The Synograph™, a groundbreaking 3-D technology created by the visionaries at General Public, redefines the limits of printing, recreating every detail of the original artwork with total fidelity. Each nuance of brushwork, texture and technique is captured, authentically revealing the artist's hand and their unique expression of beauty and emotion.
