Seife’s work has received much celebrity acclaim and he has even been commissioned by both Kanye West and Pharrell to produce cover art for them in the past. This exhibit, however, focuses on his more conceptual output. Extending his childhood obsession into the present day, Seife’s work draws on the macabre themes of the Renaissance alongside modern, sci-fi imagery, depicting various scenes of anguish and torment in traditional oils, yet with modern, bright shades and unorthodox materials.
Entitled “Palindromes,” the exhibit runs from April 4 until May 10, and you can catch it for yourself here:
