Sean Patrick O’Brien’s primary goal as an artist is to create an experience for the viewer that is engaging and encourages interaction. He wants people to touch, play, “feel like a kid,” go inside, explore, and be curious. Often using natural phenomena like the creation of colors in a rainbow, the glow-in-the-dark of phosphoresces, pull of magnetism, or the vibrations of sound and light the work becomes about each person’s discovery as well as creating a shared experience of the strange and beautiful wonders of our universe. Sean graduated in 2007 (BA) from Massachusetts College of Art and Design and did Masters in Performing Arts from Iceland University of the Arts in 2021.
