Painter, sculptor & musician working in London, Berlin & Ronda, his home in Southern Spain
A graduate of Central St Martin’s and an innovative educator, David Seaton began working primarily in sculpture. His work was included in William Tucker’s landmark,, and somewhat controversial show, The Condition of Sculpture (Hayward Gallery, 1975), and the following year, Seaton had his first solo show at Yorkshire Sculpture Park.
Now a dedicated and boldly idiosyncratic painter, he works with pure, dry pigment and often incorporates collage to literally build his images.
Seaton’s sense of colour, rhythm, and composition is not only inspired by sculpture and architecture, but also music. Seaton is also a musician - clarinet - and has collaborated on recordings with his son, Joe Seaton (AKA Call Super).
