Sequin Kay, born 1984, from London UK, currently lives and works in-between London and Ibiza, Spain.
Sequin Kay is a British contemporary multidisciplinary artist who exhibits internationally. Kay formally trained in Fine Art and Painting at Camberwell Collage of Arts and Goldsmiths University in London, UK.
Sequin’s work explores spiritual realities such as Higher Sense Perception, metaphysics and the secrets of the universe. Her signature hand crafted art-works offer a window into the power of unseen energy, exploring the intriguing beauty and transformative power and paradoxical nature of healing, destruction and personal chaos. She was commissioned her first piece of artwork at the age of fifteen years of age and from then on a love for the arts developed. Shortly after graduating she was awarded The 2009 Fiber Award in Canada for her mixed media and textile artworks and awarded an artist residency in Switzerland.
Passionate about environmental issues Sequin is currently raising awareness of sustainability and animal protection by donating and working with The Ibiza Preservation Fund in Ibiza and the Rimou Tiger Charity in Malaysia. Her most recent collection The 2020 Zodiac Collection is raising funds to directly protect Malaysian Tigers, and their habitat. In this pivotal collection she intuitively brings the abstract elements of each of the thirteen constellations into life on the canvas. By bringing Heaven down to Earth through the creation of each Zodiac she is inviting the viewer to really question ultimately who they are.
There is an underlying element of personal transformation present in her collections and through the exploration of transpersonal psychology Sequin has created a powerful reflective tool for the viewer to investigate and explore themselves through the connective power of contemporary art. Through the power of her artworks she invites the viewer to see into the mystery of themselves and gain a deeper understanding into the nature of interconnectedness.
Kay is an experimental artist whose practice expands across multiple disciplines and mediums such as; Site Specific Installations, mixed media textiles, sculpture, painting, digital projection and illustration.
