Seb was born in South Africa and still remembers playing with oil paints in those formative years. At 11 he moved to England and at 14 the Sweatman family moved to Canada. Seb went to the University of Vermont where he studied Studio Art as a minor. He currently paints in a small studio in Vermont.
From an Art standpoint, after college, Seb focused on the figure. Although he used an image for reference, the color of the resulting painting was all Seb. At some point he switched, and to this date, paints mainly large, abstract, acrylic canvases.
Seb's work is available on Saatchi Art. His work is also available, in a unique format, at General Public and Restoration Hardware.
