Sean Mahan lives and works in Florida. His main techniques are graphite and acrylic painted on wood. By using wood as a surface he tries to depict “a sense of wonder about the innate warmth of the human character and its conflict with structures of power and control” as he describes is in his site. His work has been exhibited in the coasts of US: New York-NY, Miami-FL, Jacksonville-FL, San Francisco-CA. His work becomes unique for the surface he paints at first. But if someone looks closer on the work could identify the innocence of the children  wrapped in a real world, a world that is there to be described. Great work. Below is a video with an interview explaining his work. Enjoy.
