Sean Flood (b.1982 Massachusetts) lives and works in New York City and holds a BFA from the Art Institute of Boston.  Flood works between oil painting and works on paper while focusing on the ways the urban environment can be translated.  Through the use of layering mediums and intersecting perspectives, Flood combines pictorial views in combination with the energy the space exudes.  In Flood's current body of work he explores the NYC Transit System.  He strives to demonstrate the constant change in atmosphere, the variety of environments and interactions he observes through mark making.
