About: Sean Madden has been drawing and painting since early childhood. He was heavily influenced as a teenager by surrealists such as Ernst Fuchs and Salvador Dali. When he was 16, he was lucky enough to be placed in a fine arts apprentice program in downtown Buffalo, NY. While there, he learned how to use color and light as tools of dynamic expression. At that time , he was also very influenced by psychedelic-era artists Robert Crumb, Robert Williams and S. Clay Wilson-- all of whom were the original artists responsible for ZAP Comics. The unapologetic level of expression of these artists appealed to Sean instantly and opened his mind up to new creative possibilities.
