The world renowned ‘Godfather of Graffiti’ SEEN is currently showing at the Opera Gallery in London. The exhibition takes inspiration from the ever-growing American comic book cultural phenomenon. Colourful large scale paintings depict the world’s most iconic crime fighters and villains, including Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman, Captain America and Spiderman.
Some superheroes were also attending the opening with SEEN who was happily chatting and signing posters for delighted guests.
Since beginning his career by painting on New York Subway trains in the 1970s, SEEN has used different mediums in his work from canvas, 3D sculpture, mixed media and even tattooing. SEEN has inspired so many generations of artists and is also credited with pioneering the transition of urban art moving from the streets into the contemporary art world by showcasing in major galleries and museums worldwide.
