Blog / 2021 / Hi, I’m Gwenn Seemel.

December 6, 2021

[video transcript of English]

This is my new video for my Patreon page: I figured it was time to introduce myself properly!

There’s more on the tech company that named a photo filter after me here, and you can see a bunch of my teenage art, including my version of Starry Night in this online gallery.


Hi, I’m Gwenn Seemel! If you’re wondering why and how I’m speaking two languages, it’s because I’m French-American.

My polka-dot cubist painting style has been delighting art lovers and inspiring artists since 2003. In 2017, a tech company recognized my contribution to the look of the new millennium by naming a photo filter “the Seemel.” This distinction would have astonished teenage Gwenn, who taught herself to use acrylic paint by copying Van Gogh’s Starry Night.

The pretty of my art—both its style and its imagery—is serious business. The idea is to draw you in with beauty, and then ask you to look again at the world and at the way you shape it.

Pleased to meet you in the digital!

Maybe this post made you think of something you want to share with me? Or perhaps you have a question about my art? I’d love to hear from you!
