Sean Rising Sun Flanagan

Renowned for my painted drums and stylized sculptures, I draw inspiration from the traditional images of my native roots. The drums are traditionally made from deer, elk and buffalo hides and are painted with a remarkable sense of design that unites deep tradition with the contemporary. My stylized sculptures and design motifs are integrated with form and color that result in a strong and vibrant balance that can be described as geometrical and organic at the same time.  They can range from a couple of feet to 12 feet high. They can stand as a focal point in a courtyard or be attached to a wall. Steel sculptures cut through a waterjet process using high velocity stream and sand abrasive to get exceptional detail. Cooked in a kiln for texture and painted with uv/water protected powdercoat.
