Suffolk born artist Seth Draper’s natural habitat is the beach. He’s a creator inspired by the coast, and a truly inventive sculptor of flotsam & jetsam.
Seth will be exhibiting his coastal inspired artwork for the first time in Scotland this summer. Echoing the golden days of British fishing Seth’s quirky fishing boats will be following the fleet up to the Found Gallery here in the harbour town of Dunbar.
Seth’s artwork is created using a selection of recycled objects such as old baked bean tins, driftwood and various other found objects, his largest piece for this exhibition even incorporates an old garden rake. The inspiration comes from anything with a coastal flavour, but focusses on fishing boats, harbour scenes and beach huts. The recycled tins are beaten flat and then cut and soldered before being painted and given an aged patina. They are then completed with driftwood and the finer details for which his work is becoming so revered.
In Seth, Found has found another kindred spirit and his fishing fleet are here for the summer season. Come see them @thefoundgallery before they sail away!
