Like most visual artists, Sean Hopp discovered at an early age that he could communicate with drawings much more effectively than with words. Ever since, he has developed paintings with the idea that a completely visual world philosophy is possible using a system of intricate personal symbols. Evolving out of a decade of dark and horrifying images, his recent series focus on the disturbing magic behind the veils of reality. They are attempts to explore the suppressed truths in modern human emotions and relationships (both external and internal), rooted in a warped outcast mythology for absurd confusing times.
