Documenting the small intimate moments in life, Sebastian Blanck’s work is comprised of portraits of loved ones, fellow artists & musicians, and his children at play.  Blanck is known for both his oil paintings and his distinct collage technique that layers painted paper over watercolor onto stretched paper.  Blanck’s color and draftsmanship vibrantly capture personalities and moods to convey great familiarity with his subjects.
