Gwenn Seemel

French-American artist, painter, portraitist.


-—The Kirk Reeves mural—-
In July, I painted a 10 by 38 foot mural of Kirk Reeves, the street performer who passed away in 2012. The piece is on NE Grand at Lloyd in Portland, Oregon, and it was featured on KOIN and KGW as well as in this video, which filmmaker Ifanyi Bell created for Oregon Public Broadcasting.

-—Painting family—-
The portrait pictured here is part of Subjective, a body of work created in collaboration with Becca Bernstein in 2010. For it, we painted ourselves and each other as well as members of our families. Each subject was represented twice, once by someone who knows her-him well and once by a stranger.

-—Being a proper patron of the arts—-
The Willamette Week says that having your portrait done by me is de rigueur for Portlanders, and who am I to argue? For more about commissioning me, go here.
