About

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.
