BRIEF HISTORY

Seth King graduated from Tyler School of Art in 1983. After a few months in Italy he moved back to Philadelphia, and then to Brooklyn, NY two years later. During the 1980’s he had some small success showing in the East Village and Soho, but towards the end of the decade found himself drawn more to poetry, film and video, and stopped painting.

He got married. Formed a production company. Children mysteriously appeared and took root. By 2015 his midlife crisis was growing in direct proportion to his reading glass number. He got tired of sitting in front of computers in a dark room and missed the physicality of drawing and painting, quit video production and rented a studio in Brooklyn, where he has begun to scrape away the mold to see if there is anything good underneath.  

b. 1961, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA
