About Sean D’Anconia:
Born in Montreal, Canada, Sean D’Anconia, designer, artist and cine-visualist, was named after another “Sean” –Connery by his mother, an intrepid James Bond fan. This early “Bondian” bullet would fire itself throughout Sean’s life and creative pursuits, flavoring his art and inspiring his worldview. Sean’s style brings together cult-cinema and animation, integrated within a wild pop-art aesthetic.
Sean’s “Pop Fusion” art, design, creative branding, collages, and melanges are all inspired through his life and work experiences in Hong Kong, Florence, Los Angeles and Vancouver, covering the past, present with a daring outlook on the future. Sean was personally inspired by Asian culture at age eight, through watching Japanese & Hong Kong films, and even went so far as traveling up to six hours to purchase collectibles at this favorite anime bookstore in Toronto. Later, he became absorbed by post World War II heroes of Italian films and French New Wave Cinema.
Dreaming of bringing his own films, animation and brands into reality, Sean “put them up,” on a screen of his own choosing, including fine-art, multimedia, apparel and accessories. Disney is just one of the many creative projects he has developed art and product design for.
