British/ American artist, born in London, 1974 and based in NYC, Paul Seftel is a constant artist and traveller.
London and Manhattan being his native cities, he spent years living in Edinburgh, New Mexico and Colorado, always studying Art, mysticism, yoga, alchemy, geology and the building arts before moving back to NYC in 2007.
Exploring the nature of consciousness for the past 20 years, art is the form and tool for his self expression.
This discovery and dissolution of self is a part of the work and the life of the artist, a solitary pursuit reflecting the deep nature of feelings and contentions present in oneself and the world. What appears is a bridge, a space of color where shifts in seeing occur, transforming essence and atmosphere into physical worlds of a transformational nature with an emotionally provocative spirit.
