SEAN GO, BORN IN 1993

EDUCATION

Go Art Gallery is an online viewing room and transparent market for select 1 of 1 works (prints) by New York City based artist Sean Go. Mixed media, sculptures, and acrylic paintings only available through DF Art Agency or Derek Flores.

Sean was born and raised in Manila, and was educated in the USA to broaden his perspectives. He has 7 degrees from UC Berkeley, Emory, Columbia, and the Fashion Institute of Technology (Candidate). From these diverse learning opportunities, Sean has blended a unique appropriation style in his art that parodies, yet pays homage to some of the pop artists before him - among them Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, and Jeff Koons. Because of his education in economics and business, as well as his international upbringing, Sean's pieces incorporate themes of capitalism, coloniality, and human nature, often in a witty and fun way which is more nuanced that what initially meets the eye.
