The sunlight enters the room like electric threads woven from the clouds. A dancer wearing a leotard and leg warmers sits in an antique chair next to a window, opened to a rooftop balcony. Her romantic style tutu is draped over a dresser with an antique mirror. The painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished black edges. It comes ready to hang.

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.
