Three Cats by Adrien Seitz

Adrien Seitz is a mixed-media artist based in New York’s Hudson Valley who began his academic career at Dutchess Community College earning an Associate degree in Science in Visual Arts in 2023. A current student at SUNY Purchase working toward his BFA in Interdisciplinary Painting and Sculpture, the majority of his pieces center around the idea of the creature utilizing acrylic and oil paints, colored pencils, crayons, and markers as well as crafting materials in an array of techniques. “In my sketchbook I have a rotating cast of characters that begin as doodles, that I will draw for weeks or months until I finally come up with a composition I can paint them in,” he states. “The concepts behind my work are centered on feelings of unfamiliarity and identity, especially as a young adult.” Mr. Seitz has enjoyed showing his work in various settings that have included Dutchess Community College’s Mildred I. Washington gallery as part of the student exhibitions in Spring and Fall of 2022.
