GUILLAUME SEFF

Guillaume Seff was born in Toulouse in 1977.  He recently returned to live in Paris after a ten years stay in Montreal. Seff is a young upcoming artist who’s work operates on the level of childlike fancy and play. The cartoon like scribbles that he paints or scratch onto the surface convey  a sense of silliness. Despite the disorderly and random juxtaposition of graffitis and text Seff manages to create his own vocabulary that gives an impression of facility and ease. In his work the artist knows how to maintain a fine balance between contradictory forces such as rough and smooth, control and spontaneity, primitive and contemporary. Guillaume Seff’s work has been exhibited in Canada and France.
