Description

Muzae Sesay is an artist born in Long Beach, California who is based out of Oakland, California.
His artistic focus derives from a lifelong commitment to understanding our collective relationship to space, memory, community, and the perceived truths within them. From that foundation, his artistic practice has thematically revolved around the merging of these relationships to form paintings that provoke social reasoning and induce the viewer’s agency in the navigation and narration of imagery. Current work connects with the feelings that arise from testing the absoluteness of the strict and rigid aspects of physics and realism found in architecture, design, and our built environment. Utilizing skewed perspectives of space and shape collapsed into flat two-dimensional planes, he creates surreal geometric interiors, exteriors, landscapes, and structures—presenting a situation in which to be experienced and explored. Inspired by ideas of cultural reflection and developed by questioning the validity of remembrance, his work often depicts worlds created in response to a social introspection and a continual challenge of perceived reality. This process involves taking imagery from the physical world and reducing them to rudimental forms that then populate fragmented universes compiled by perspectival fallacies and tied together by harmonious color composition. The viewer is compelled to understand the space, question its dimensionality, dive inside and walk around.
Muzae has had shows at Pt. 2 Gallery in Oakland, I.M.A. in San Francisco, Guerrero Gallery in San Francisco, Pt. 2 Gallery in LA, SFMOMA, Fisk Gallery in Portland, V1 Gallery in Copenhagen, Spaceship in New York amongst many others.
His work has been covered in Juxtapoz, ArtMaze, Vice, Create! Magazine, and SF Weekly just to name a few.
