DAVE SEELEY claims to be a victim of modern mass media and the one-second-MTV-vid-shot, hence the moniker “Image Junkie." He is far more influenced by contemporary sci-fi film noir than by the legacy of science fiction illustration. Dave came from an education in architecture and fine art. After 10 years as an award-winning architect, he was seduced by the glamour of illustration and derailed his career for the far more immediate gratification of image making. The inner-architect is flourishing in his work, where a sense of materials fetishism, and a love of spatial atmospherics are omnipresent.
The 176 Page Deluxe The Art of Dave Seeley, published by Insight Editions, is now available on Amazon.com. In addition, Dave is one of 10 artists profiled in Dick Jude’s Fantasy Art Masters by Harper Collins, and profiled in Karen Haber’s Masters of Science Fiction and Fantasy Art. He is a contributor to Jane Frank’s Pixel or Paint by NonStop Press. Dave is interviewed in issue 39 of ImagineFX Magazine, and is on the cover of and featured in the August ’06 Art Scene International. He is also featured in the documentary film by Michael MacDonald at Roadhouse films called Visions From the Edge: The Art of Science Fiction. You can see more printed work in Spectrum: The Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art, Ballistic’s Exposé, and d-artist Concept Art.
