Sean Danconia has built a seductive visual universe by marrying his love for cult-cinema, comics and animation to a wild pop-art aesthetic. His irreverent, prolific, and explosive imagination—based on an encyclopedic knowledge of popular culture —has produced a compelling array of fine art, collectibles and multimedia experiences across the globe.
After living and working in Italy, Hong Kong and Vancouver —this iconoclast Canadian designer/artist/animator burst onto the LA art scene in 2008, lending his signature style to official programs for Disney®, New Balance, Hello Kitty, the Bob Marley Estate, King Features, Warner Bros and Marilyn Monroe, among others – in addition to various independent projects.
With a knowing eye for trend undercurrents years before they hit, Danconia’s creative arsenal integrates hand-painting, illustration, and photography with 3D & digital mediums, culminating in his unique ‘UltraMod‘ stylization—an irreverent rebellion against the SuperFlat and traditional PopArt movement.
In addition to Mouche Gallery (Beverly Hills) and Animazing (Las Vegas), Danconia art collections have been featured at Sotheby’s, LAB ART, Gallery 1988, Spoke Art (San Francisco), Wonderground Gallery (Downtown Disney®), ArtInsights Film Art Gallery (Virginia) and KOJAWAN (London).
Sean Danconia works out of his Dallas-based atelier—ENJIN FACTORY and his newly established D GALLERY—creative studios focused on fine-art, design and new-media. Recent projects include a limited-edition series for Godather of Manga, Osamu Tezuka’s Tezuka Productions (Astro Boy , Kimba The White Lion) in addition to prep for the recent ‘MOD as HELL‘ and ‘Kitties, Mice, Robos and Rice‘ exhibition, launched at Mouche Gallery.
