Sean Madden


Sean Madden has been drawing and painting since he was four years old. It was his first identity in life. Over the last 3 decades, he has had countless solo and group shows, and he says he feel like he is just getting started. Similar to a jazz musician who hits certain notes in order to evoke emotion in the listener, he has discovered the subject matter, and the interplay of light, form and color that inspires his audience most. With this in mind, he wants to portray creative energy on the canvas. He wants to show creative energy as he sees it; as a light-filled force that moves through people and the universe. When he paints, he is having fun, and he wants the viewer to have fun also. I want them to feel the creative energy that moves through him. He feels incredibly fortunate to have the opportunity to connect with other people through this creative energy. His paintings speak to people in a language that words can’t embrace. This creative energy has given his life a beautiful sense of purpose and meaning.

His work has been exhibited and published in the UK, Australia, Canada, Europe, and throughout the US. For years, he provided covers and interior illustrations for science fiction and horror publishers. He specializes in very detailed pen and ink illustrations, and also works in oils and acrylics. His art has been used in two notable movies: “My First Mister,” starring Albert Brooks and “Scream 4.” 

Sean has a graduate degree in Counselor Education (SUNY Brockport, 1990), and has studied painting and drawing at the Rochester Institute of Technology, Empire State College, and privately with respected Rochester artists Carol Acquilano and Steve Carpenter. He grew up on Buffalo’s north side, and has been drawing and painting his entire life. He is currently an active exhibiting member of The Buffalo Society of Artists, Emerging Leaders in the Arts Buffalo (ELAB), and the Batavia Society of Artists. He recently won the 2018 “Artist of the Year Award” at the prestigious Limner Gallery in Hudson, N.Y.

Sean is also a veteran jazz guitarist with the power trio, “FlashBamPow.” They are experienced veteran performers with many live radio and stage performances to our credit.
