Biography / Peter Kelk / Seymour

Peter Kelk is a New Zealand born artist. Under the pseudonym ‘Seymour’, he uses a diverse range of mediums including sculpture and print to create his stylistically recognisable pieces that range from limited edition art toys to intricately detailed on off sculpted pieces. Seymour’s works are featured in the URBAN NATION 2018 exhibition, ‘UN-DERSTAND The Power of Art as a Social Architect’

Based in his Melbourne studio, Seymour creates his pieces of art by using a diverse range of mediums including sculpture and print. In his early career, Peter Kelk was a graphic designer and it was back then he created his pseudonym Seymour to distinguish his work as a designer from his passion for art. The inspiration for his sculptural pieces comes from several influences, one example coming from Japanese art toys and his encounters between eastern and western culture. He has curated the annual international art toy show ‘XENOPLASM’ and has exhibited his work in a wide range of projects as well as solo and group shows.
