Scott Sueme is a Canadian artist raised in Vancouver, BC. Since attending Emily Carr in 2006, Sueme has been working as a graphic artist and painter. Starting in the graffiti subculture he has ventured personally and commercially through art, design, and installation painting. Sueme has been commissioned to work with collaborators such as HCMA Architecture, P22d Design, and The City of Vancouver. Recently, he has completed large scale mural projects with The City of Vancouver and Hootsuite, wrapping a full 3 story building for the Vancouver Mural Festival (2016). Sueme currently works out of his studio near Vancouver’s Olympic Village. He is represented in Vancouver by Kimoto Gallery.
In recent works, Sueme explores a fundamental study in form, shape, and interactions of colour. The colour palette ranges from high contrast, to subtle neutral and off-white. The selection of these colours aims to capture the zeitgeist of our modern landscape - a fresh take on primary tones and in-between values. The result looks at a new association with colour, memory, and how we personally identify with them. The simplicity of the compositions reflect a sense of ‘quiet’ that allows the viewer to observe the harmony in various marks, colour and composition.
