Born in Canada, Shelby Seu paints hyperreal, symbolist portraits that reflect the intimate connection she fosters with her subject matter. Her oil paintings act as a mode of personal inquiry into how we view our existence, relationship to the world, and the passage of time. She received her BFA in Painting from the Maryland Institute College of Art (2011) and her MFA in Fine Art from Goldsmiths College (2015). Seu has participated in programmes at the Institute of Contemporary Art Moscow, Yale University Norfolk and Central Saint Martins. She currently lives and works in Berlin, Germany.
