Art / Design / Film / Music
Work & Non Work
My name is Sean Curtis Patrick and I am a visual artist, designer, documentarian, filmmaker, and musician.
My fine art and music have brought me to the prestigious Banff Centre in Banff, Alberta and to the cities of Japan. While, my photography and documentaries have gotten me all around the United States, Europe, remote and hostile areas of Greenland, isolated regions of Iceland, and hurricane ravaged Puerto Rico. I have been employed by the esteemed University of Michigan, University of Texas at Austin, & Stanford University throughout my more academically focused career. Additionally, I have worked for and with many established global brands/organizations, such as Audi, Bosch, BMW, General Motors, Make Noise Music, Morr Music, Kranky Records, PIAS Recordings, Room40, The National Science Foundation, Vice Versa Wines and many others.

Please feel free to write if you are interested in commissions, hiring, purchase of fine art, or to just say hello. Reach me at ‘seancpat (at) gmail.com’. CV available here.
