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 New Balance, Disney®, Hello Kitty, the Bob Marley Estate, The Japan 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 PopArt movements”.
"SuperPop" art collections have been featured at Mouche Gallery (Beverly Hills / Maui), Sotheby’s, LAB ART, Gallery 1988, SPOKE ART (San Francisco), Wonderground Gallery (Downtown Disney), ArtInsights Film Art Gallery (Virginia), KOJAWAN (London) among others.
Sean Danconia works out of SupaPop Studios - a brand development agency focused on animation and media development, with offices in New York, LA and London. Current projects include Suzi Sixty-6 with former President of Marvel Animation, Eric Rollman, "Best Frenemies" with Manga Entertainment (London) and a SupaPop 6-11 animated property with the iconic Al Kahn, of 4Kids fame (Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh).
