Sean W. Spellman is a New England native, western transplant and American traveller. In the past 5 years he has criss-crossed the country more than two dozen times documenting his journey in paintings, drawings, photographs and song. These "interpretations" serve as self-proclaimed personal inspiration to "keep moving" and as conceptual documents of the many places a person might dream of calling home. His work has been featured in places like Rolling Stone, Urban Outfitters and Freehand Hotels. His alter ego, Sgt Joe Roberts, has documented his own public art in locations from the Mojave to New Delhi. His signature depiction is that of a rolling sea and golden sunset, a traditional abstraction in minimalist form.
