About the Artist
Sebastian McLaughlin is an Artist from Buncrana, Co.Donegal, Ireland.
Having previously studied Fine Art back in Ireland at GMIT Galway and NCAD Dublin, he emigrated to New York City in 2010 to pursue the Arts. He has had solo exhibitions and group showings since then and his work belongs to various private collectors around the world.
Sebastian’s work is a mixture of traditional mediums using figurative, portraits and landscape / cityscape as subjects. He creates work that is an atmospheric sensitivity to it through the possession depth that expresses something that evokes us to feel, to engage and take away a piece of something, a thought, a perspective, a message. Sebastian claims that his art is inherent, “Art comes natural to me it is part of who I am, a gift given from my mother”. He loves to explore subjects through various media, pencil, charcoal, pastel, conte, oil, oil pastel, acrylic paint. The artist takes most of his inspiration from exploring, his surroundings, and the human figure. He also gains inspiration from wide ranging artists, Hopper, Degas, Van Gogh, Egon Schiele, Alex Kanevsky, Daniel Pitin and Kim Cogan.
He currently continues his work studies at “The Art Students League of New York”.
