Sean Paul Gallegos engages in a cyclical dance with living in New Mexico. Though just a wink of time was spent in Northern New Mexico in his early childhood, his ancestry spans several generations. He’s now entering his 9th non-consecutive year of residing in Albuquerque. The rest of his life has been split between Metro-Detroit and the Bronx, NYC. He spent over 15 years in the Bronx honing his craft and building an art career. His work was published in the New York Times, Artforum.com Critic Picks and the latest interview with the American Federation of Arts exhibition, Out of the Box: The Rise of Sneaker Culture’s blog. Sean Paul’s exhibition highlights include Aqua Art Fair Miami, AIM 33: Artist in the Marketplace at the Bronx Museum of the Arts and La Bienal at El Museo del Barrio in Harlem, NYC. Sean Paul's work was recently acquired by The Albuquerque Museum for their permanent collection and exhibition "American Jewelry of New Mexico" that opened June 2018. He ended his summer at The Sonoran Desert Inn & Conference Center for their inaugural artist residency in Ajo, Arizona.
