- Sean Madden -









Hailing from Rochester, New York, Sean Madden has been battling in the trenches of the
underground art scene for many years. His work has been published in the UK, Canada,
Australia, and the USA in the form of t-shirts as well as book and magazine covers and interior
illustrations. Sean's dark, pop-surrealistic style combines with elements of psychedelia and
LowBrow art to create the perfect medium for interpreting the overflow of ideas that come
from his subconscious.

FREAK OUT! is Sean's first solo art exhibit with Hyaena Gallery and draws inspiration from the
music of Frank Zappa. With each painting Sean Madden illustrates a segment of Zappa's
lyrical story, placing the characters in a new visual context that is appealing no matter how
familiar you are with the source material. It is a fitting tribute, considering Sean's background
as a musician and his recent battles against censorship (i.e. Sean was placed on
administrative leave from his 25 year career as a counselor to abused children because a
conservative element in the community objected to the nature of his art), reminiscent of when Zappa stood up to the PMRC. Sometimes for better, sometimes for worse…
we're still walking in Frank's footsteps.

"The most important thing in art is The Frame. For painting: literally; for other arts: figuratively--
because, without this humble appliance, you can't know where The Art stops and The Real
World begins. You have to put a 'box' around it because otherwise, what is that shit
on the wall?" - Frank Zappa
