Sean Sobczak's second life began late in the summer of 2001, when he attended the Burning Man art festival for the first time. Deeply inspired by the boundless creativity he experienced that week, he returned to Los Angeles and began working on his first sculptural creation: a six foot tall, glowing seahorse which would be the cornerstone of an elaborate 33 foot long mobile installation for the next summer's festival. By the time he completed the project, Sean knew he had found his life's calling in sculpture.  His explorations of the alien worlds of plant, insect and ocean life have been the predominant focus of his work to date. Through a combination of steel wire, imported fabrics and various types of illumination, he uses delicate curves, rich textures and warm colors to infuse his pieces with a gentle, dreamlike surreality, encouraging the viewer to rediscover these wonders of nature with a sense of childlike awe.  In his most recent foray, The Convergence Series, Sean combines backlighting with shadowcasting in a collection of organic, iconic and geometrically inspired pieces. The sculptures, backlit themselves, cast fantastic light and shadow arrays, incorporating the entire wall or ceiling into the piece.  Well known in the L.A. underground, Sean's sculptures have been in numerous venues and events in and around Los Angeles over the last eight years. In addition to Burning Man, his work has been shown at other large west coast festivals including The Coachella Valley Music and Art Festival, Lightning In a Bottle, Dark Skies and The Electric Daisy Carnival. His work has also been shown at corporate and benefit events, more traditional art venues and in the pages of the Los Angeles Times.  The thirty-something artist was born and raised in the midwest, but moved to Los Angeles at the age of 20 to pursue a career as a professional chef. He's been working in the film industry ever since.
