Past Exhibits

​Sean Flood was born and raised on the south shore of Massachusetts in 1982. As far back as he can remember, he was always drawing.  During high school, he had attended summer classes at Massachusetts College of Art and Design. With the encouragement of his art teachers, Flood decided to further his studies and attend the Art Institute of Boston in 2000. 

During his formative training at the Art Institute of Boston (B.F.A. Fine Art 2005), Flood was immersed in traditional instruction including still life and figurative painting, but he found he was drawn to and captivated by interiors and pictorial spaces. By the end of his college experience, his primary focus was cityscapes, perhaps influenced by the first hand exposure to his father’s life work in the construction business. Flood’s approach to painting urban scenes and structures simulates and celebrates the energy of the city and the construction process. The paintings reveal the process from foundation to structure to completed form.
