SEB GOREY was born in 1976 in Paris, France. Today, he is based in New York City working as an artist and designer focusing on overcoming the decay of our civilization. His work portrays the ingeniosity and versatility of human made recycling, englobing the end of industrial production and the revenge of nature. The main aspect of his production is the idea of stacking and coliding disparate elements to form unity. The traditional stylistic, rather figurative, approach depicts a post apocalyptic environment influenced by street culture in which the humans have survived. In addition to his fine art production, Seb Gorey is the menswear fashion designer of the label Woolf Nyc and also works as an illustrator and graphic designer for the brand.

MIKE GIANT

By Gorey - Wednesday, April 23, 2014

The big homie is killing it in this video for Major Lazer. Best steady hand, tons of amazing clean fonts, super creative layering… this is so good it made me like the song !

Here’s is another example done for one of my ever favorite french musician: Dj Mehdi with the incredible Futura2000.  » Read more about: MIKE GIANT  »

WOOLF x POINTER

By Gorey - Tuesday, February 25, 2014

This is the first co-branding initiative that Woolf launches. Partnering with Pointer Brand meant a lot to me as they are a family owned american business that’s been running since 1913 from Bristol Tenessee, allowing us to be under a made in USA label for the first time. I’m using the camo fabric from the pocket on our spring delivery and it felt natural to re-inject it in their chore jacket. Made at a limited range of 170 pieces,  » Read more about: WOOLF x POINTER  »

AIMÉ LEON DORE x GOREY

By Gorey - Monday, February 24, 2014

The good guys at AIMÉ have released a video we shot a couple month back, day in the life editorial. If you’re familiar with my work you know by now that I’m a discreet kind, I want my production to be at the forefront and don’t really care about the self, the ego and the persona. So when they approached me to do this piece, the thing that seemed to reflect me enough was to center the piece on my beautiful two year old daughter.  » Read more about: AIMÉ LEON DORE x GOREY  »

FOOD is GOOD

By Gorey - Tuesday, August 6, 2013

Good food that is better for you and the environment all combined with street cred is what all food posts should be about, when I got introduced to Alan by my good friend Grotesk a couple years back my pitch to differentiate potential blog post to him was that I would combine graffiti and food. Almost as soon as I got the blog green light from the 12OZ team I got into some heavy changes in my diet as I took time to educate myself on the subject.  » Read more about: FOOD is GOOD  »

The Worlds Best Ever // Gorey Sound Advice

By Gorey - Thursday, May 30, 2013

That post felt thru the cracks, so I’m a little late on it but I’m very please to introduce you to my Sound Advice on The Worlds Best Ever. The idea of Sound Advice, if you don’t know it, is to broadcast a mix done by creative people that are not necessarily dj’s. I think it is a very intimate way to discover someone’s taste in what surrounds them on a daily basis: music. Since you’re getting the best taste in a musical genre that might not be yours all the time,  » Read more about: The Worlds Best Ever // Gorey Sound Advice  »
