Sean Danconia has built a seductive visual universe by marrying cult-cinema & animation to a wild pop-art aesthetic. Whether applied to fine art, apparel, or animation, Danconia’s colorful, multi-layered collage of cinematic stories and iconic characters are instantly recognizable.
After living and working in Italy, Hong Kong, Vancouver—this iconoclast Canadian designer/artist/animator burst onto the LA art scene in 2008, lending his iconic style to Disney®, Hello Kitty, the Bob Marley Estate, The Nisei Week Foundation, Anime Expo, King Features, Warner Bros and Marilyn Monroe, among others – in addition to various independent projects.
Danconia’s composite world is a “bio pic” of his own imagination: irreverent, prolific, explosive – based on an encyclopedic knowledge of popular culture past, and a knowing eye for future trend undercurrents years before they hit. His creative arsenal integrates hand painting, illustration and photography, with 3D & digital mediums, culminating in what Danconia identifies as “SuperPop” – an irreverent rebellion against the SuperFlat and traditional pop art movement.
