About

Artist Statement:
I make artwork out of necessity, it’s a way for me to work through everyday life. My process is a constantly evolving one, using the tools I have until a concept is fully realized. My artwork is usually theme based and I think in terms of a series when exploring new ideas. I mainly paint, but I also construct 3 dimensional figures in construction paper and produce short art films to express myself.

My artwork is light-hearted in nature, I tend to focus on things that make me happy. I enjoy imagining places when creating artwork, places to escape to when everyday life is just too loud. My hope is that my works will resonate with you in some small way.

Biography:
Seth Feriano lives and works in the greater Washington DC area. His formal training began when he attended Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Georgia. Working in oils, Seth’s painting style has a uniqueness; a harmony between soft forms and vibrant color.

After graduation, Seth moved to New York where he maintained an artist studio in Reis Studios. It was there, that Seth’s style fully emerged with his Magnetic Train series. This work led to him becoming a semi-finalist in the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s Arts for Transit Program, Broadway Station project.  Later, Seth’s focus broadened when he chose to study architecture at the University of New Mexico.
