Sean Martorana + Eames & Herman Miller
"The Eames Shell Armchair sits on the throne of modern day design and fabrication. The addition of gold luster speaks to the great power and effect that seemingly simple forms and design can have on us, and the outsized influence they can have on art and design for decades.
Riding the line of fine art and design, symbols of life were applied freehand, allowing the curves of the chair and the flow of the paint to guide each stroke of the brush." - Sean Martorana

Sean Martorana + Philly Love Notes
Sean Martorana’s Breath of Desire artist statement
"When asked to create something for Philly Love Notes that represented Philadelphia, I wanted to look beyond the obvious and learn more about the city I love so much. So I started to research the unofficial symbols of Philadelphia that I felt captured the spirit and attitude of the people — our passion, loyalty and acceptance."

Sean Martorana + Alex Cerr
I am always ready to collaborate with somebody. While I feel solo projects allow me to express myself in it’s purest form, collaborations bring something else out in me. You are learning off of each other while teaching each other at the same time. You have to be at 110% because the other person is counting on you to be. You have to trust the people you work with. Trust that they will do their part to create something amazing. There is nothing better than people coming together to create one incredible experience.
