Looking South on the Gravina peaks to an apricot-colored sunrise illuminating the ancient Catholic Cathedral upon Sassi di Matera districts in Basilicata, Sicily. Under the carvings of calcarenitic rock, wondering how the rolling clouds can so inflate the sky like a sea of coral. I lean forward to bring closer to the elegance and grace within stone and wood. Looking above to shuddering and shimmering color moving like heat in the distance. Matera, a wonderland beyond the boundaries of allure.

Getting to Know Seth

Seth’s life and art career are anything but normal. As a teenager, he left an abusive home and put himself through high school. After graduation, he made his way to California, where the noted painter Tom X took him under his wing. Then, in 2004, Seth put down his brushes for almost six years to focus on a biotech career. It wasn’t until he reunited with his grandmother after nearly 20 years apart that he considered painting full-time. She was a recognized artist and continuously encouraged him to paint. When she passed away just three years after they reunited, Seth decided to pursue his dream. He moved north and built an art studio. Today, he is one of UGallery’s top creators.
