Embellished iconic Eames Shell Armchair in collaboration with Herman Miller Philadelphia for their ANNUAL MODERN CLASSIC for Design Philadelphia at the Center for Architecture + Design.

"The Eames Shell Armchair sits on the throne of modern day design and fabrication. The addition of gold luster speaks to the great power and effect that seemingly simple forms and design can have on us, and the outsized influence they can have on art and design for decades.

Riding the line of fine art and design, symbols of life were applied freehand, allowing the curves of the chair and the flow of the paint to guide each stroke of the brush." - Sean Martorana

Sean Martorana’s artwork and designs transform familiar subjects into conceptual representations, coursing with the energy and emotion that lies beneath the surface of everything he sees. By deconstructing the physical existence of figures, florals, and fauna, he reveals the power and spirit that connects all things and beings.
With a base in drawing, painting, and design, the possible applications of Sean’s work are myriad, as he continually experiments with new subjects and mediums in his bold, iconic style. Sean’s work graces two-dimensional surfaces, hand-painted murals, fashion collaborations, large-scale multi-media installations and interior surface designs with his textile collections. His work has been shown in galleries, restaurants, hotels, on the street, and in homes.
What motivates Sean to keep moving forward is knowing the powerful effect that art and design can have on people. He continues to spread his artistic energy through personal pieces, commissions, and collaborations with artists in various creative fields.
