Sébastien Johnson, a Chicago-based artist and designer whose unique neo-classical works bridge the past with the future. In this body of work, Johnson reimagines classical compositions from the Baroque and Rococo periods, infusing them with a modern sensibility that both disrupts and communicates with historical aesthetics. Each piece in this captivating show begins with a meticulous study of historical art, which Johnson then 'breaks' by introducing rebellious, contemporary elements. The result is a provocative exploration of time and transformation, challenging viewers to reconsider the boundaries between eras.
