Sebastian Correa is a talented and prolific artist who moved from New York City to Wilson, NC. He is a partner at Artisan Leaf, a local company that specilizes in making high-end, custom furniture and accessories using tobacco leaves. Additionally, Sebastian co-owns Rockstars & Flowers studio, known for their signature paintings which reflect his unmistakable process, color pallet and technique. Sebastian has his art studio in Historic Downtown Wilson, where Jon the Dog rules.
“Sixty Birds & Two Horses” is a collection of paintings inspired by my father, Angel Correa’s art.Throughout my life, my dad always made bold and stylized art of the highest quality and craftsmanship. His preferred mediums were copper enameling, ceramics, painting and stained glass. His repetition of subjects created an interconnected body of work, and the consistent influence of Art Decco and use of Mayan and Aztec symbolism unified all his pieces into a cohesive collection.
Born and raised in Chile, and now residing in Miami, my father is a true Renaissance man who has many accomplishments including being a lawyer, general contractor, published author (philosophy), game inventor, songwriter, chef and most importantly, he’s a loving husband and father. A common thread throughout, is that he always made art.
My father hasn’t shown his art in years and this is our first collaboration. He has many more designs beyond those reflected in “Sixty Birds & Two Horses”, so I look forward to doing this again.
