Sean Randall

Artist + Sean Randall

I am an oil painter, originally from California’s Napa Valley. A lifelong doodler of portraits, comics and illustrations, as well as a screen-printer and erstwhile designer, I didn’t actually begin smearing paint on stuff until I was knee deep into my 30s. Starting with a jar of cheap brushes and painting mostly portraits of friends, family, derelicts and ne’er-do-wells, I soon traded my brushes for pallet knives and began adding cityscapes, narrative designs and random thought-thinkings into my subject matter.

In 2008, I had my first solo exhibition in Redding California. Over the next 4 years, I enjoyed several successful group and solo shows throughout California. My work was featured in local papers and shiny magazines and I was commissioned for portraits, album covers and t-shirt designs. In 2011, I moved to Portland, Oregon and over the next five years enjoyed many exhibitions in and around one of the greatest cities in the world. Portland was an incredible inspiration and provided the spark for virtually every painting I completed in this prolific, beer-soaked period.

I recently said farewell to Portland and hello to New Orleans. New jokes in new pubs, new faces giving me new smiles and dirty looks, new street corners with new stories. They all find their way into my work. The faces and lives of the folks I've seen and if I'm lucky, gotten to know here in New Orleans, have found (or will find) their way onto my panels. The diversity of the city is inspiring to me, as are the biographies of these folks. Some of their stories I know, and some I make up over the course of scribbling their pictures.

I encourage the viewer to do the same. Create the narrative in your own mind.
