Opulent Art - Artists
Sean Christopher Ward
Born and raised in Kansas, outside of the major arts and culture meccas of the world, Sean Christopher Ward has taken it upon himself to start creating oddities of shapes and designs to pass the time and to enliven his mind with far out designs since he was five years old, at which he won his very first “art contest” at a local grocery store and it throttled the concept that maybe this wackiness could some day become an every day ordeal to enjoy life in the way he sees it. Fostering designs from memories, cultures, corporate identities and then modulating and expanding these to artistic works has become a challenge that he continues to trick the mind in seeing kinetic movement from flat surfaces and has become a force to deal with in the op art movement, evoking the memories of the 60s and 70s even further in our modern day! Forward 22 years later, with a Bachelors of Fine Arts from Wichita State University in his pocket, his art has travelled the world and got into major collections on every continent, with over 930 of his works in happy homes and businesses and each month the number continues to grow. This voyage in the arts has allowed connections to some major notable collectors including Universal Japan, Elton John, Bob Dylan, The Pixies, Planetary Holdings, Karen Sijbrandij, Milan Kordestani, Aaron Lux and the Center for Women’s Wellness. Sean continues to fine tune his craft and will continuously create new artworks for the rest of his life, as this is his true calling in hopes to bring excitement and happiness to those around him.
