My Son, Sean Blake, is a self-taught artist. His first introduction into the world of pointillism came in high school between where this specific technique, developed between 1859-91 by the French neo-impressionist painter Seurat, captivated Sean’s attention. For the last ten years, Sean has been developing a portfolio which focuses on wildlife and endangered animals.
This systematic approach of pointillism combines tiny dots and hatch marks of pure black color to create textured and detailed images. Look closely to see the fine detail! Sean begins each drawing with a pencil sketch and uses rapidograph pens to to complete the design. The dabs of pure black are mixed int he viewer’s eye to produced detailed effects. Original pieces are 18″x24″ and take Sean 60-80 hours to complete. His illustrative style is reproduced on 16″x20″ limited edition lithographs, unbleached cotton shirts and sweatshirts and notecards.
Through his art Sean recognizes the unique spirit, energy and wisdom of the animals of the earth.
