★ Consciousness Artivist ★ Seth West ★ Peace Coast OptiMystic ★
I am a Visual Artivist, Conceptual Sculptor, Filmmaker and Balladeer in Venice, California. My artwork primarily explores the nature of Consciousness. Concept, Intention and Light are the heart of my work. I have been blessed with a natural impulse to create. A deep curiosity, love of Art and rich imagination are my guide. All of creation is Guru. I am a grateful and enthusiastic student. Ecstatic visions energetically humanifest themselves in a myriad body of art work. My self-taut Maximalist Art practice keenly embraces sculpture, video, shrines and temples, painting, new media art, song writing, installation, EDM, performance, blown ‘Hot’ glass, woodwork, rituals, metalwork, LIGHT, sadhana, guitar, photography, storytelling, curating, poetry, social critique, snail mail scribe, recording artist, history buff, writing, drawing, conceptual cypher & intention.
Artivist = artist and activist.
My heart-centered Maximalist Art practice enthusiastically embraces all phenomena of this precious human incarnation, as Sacred High Art, with an inclusive intention of healing our sad and beautiful world.
I have manifested my multifarious artworks at Samsøn Prøjects, Yes Oui Si, Blanc Gallery, On City Walls, COSM, Pilchuck, White Owl Temple, Embrace, Mobius and MEME.
2000-present: I have been faithfully engaged in a robust, art making, studio practice. I am an avid reader and student of history, dharma and art. Devoted Sadhu.
