Sebastian Boesmi is a contemporary artist whose works are characterized by their innovative approach and ability to explore complex and profound themes through painting, drawing, light sculpture, and video art.

They are images full of intimate experiences, with a kind of very personal rhythm and cadence that speak of migration and movement, the relationship we have with technology and nature, and the profound need not to forget the playful, aesthetic, and pleasurable dimension of Contemporary art
