Canadian Scott Sueme was raised in Vancouver BC, where he initially worked as a graphic artist and painter approaching the graffiti’s subculture, for which he left his studies at the Emily Carr University in 2006 and to deepen his venture and carrier through art, design and installation painting. His choice was made to pursue a deeper understanding through first-hand experience.
Today Scott has been commissioned to work with collaborators such as HCMA Architecture, P22d Design, and The City of Vancouver. Recently, he has completed large-scale mural projects with The City of Vancouver and Hootsuite, wrapping a full 3 story building for the Vancouver Mural Festival (2016).
Coming from a background in graffiti, Scott has always seen his artistic carrier as an attempt to experiment and break boundaries. As a matter of fact, he undertook multiple mediums, and his process obtained more “happy incidents” beyond an overly polished product, to express his renewed spontaneous outlook, compelling to explore the conceptual side of art juxtaposing materials and techniques. His attempt is to cause a reaction and to be edgy, so to stand out with a nonconventional artistic approach.
He is today a skilled artist that found success with various commissioned projects relating to public art and corporate art ventured, and he also conveyed with brand images such as Nike, Microsoft, VANOC and City of Vancouver. Scott currently works out of his studio in DTES in Vancouver BC as a freelance artist and graphic designer, showcasing his works on an International level, aspiring to grow in the graffiti art world and further his technique and process.
His series of work HOMEWORK will be on show at the Kimoto Gallery in Vancouver BC, from may 8th to June 9th, 2018.
