Sean Danconia has built a seductive visual universe by marrying cult-cinema & animation to a wild pop-art aesthetic. Whether applied to fine art, apparel, or animation, Danconia's colorful, multi-layered collage of cinematic stories and iconic characters are instantly recognizable.
After living and working in Italy, Hong Kong, Vancouver—this iconoclast Canadian designer/artist/animator burst onto the LA art scene in 2008, lending his iconic style to New Balance, Disney®, Hello Kitty, the Bob Marley Estate, The Japan Foundation, Anime Expo, King Features, Warner Bros and Marilyn Monroe, among others – in addition to various independent projects.
Danconia’s composite world is a “bio pic” of his own imagination: irreverent, prolific, explosive – based on an encyclopedic knowledge of popular culture past, and a knowing eye for future trend undercurrents years before they hit. His creative arsenal integrates hand painting, illustration and photography, with 3D & digital mediums, culminating in what Danconia identifies as "SuperPop - an irreverent rebellion against the SuperFlat and traditional PopArt movements”.
"SuperPop" art collections have been featured at Mouche Gallery (Beverly Hills / Maui), Sotheby’s, LAB ART, Gallery 1988, SPOKE ART (San Francisco), Wonderground Gallery (Downtown Disney), ArtInsights Film Art Gallery (Virginia), KOJAWAN (London) among others.
Exhibitions for 2016 include installations at the Gallery of Music and Art at The Forum Shops, Caesar’s Palace, Gallery Nucleus for Osamu Tezuka's 70th Anniversary and "ART ATTACK" at the Joseph Watson Collection.
