About Sean Brown: 

Sean Brown is a multidisciplinary creative with focus on photography and multi-dimensional desgin. His works both personal and commercial, oftn recite themes surrounding accidental menaing: finding context through process, research, and exploration. His early endeeeavours in fashion illustration and retail led him to "The Art of Reuse" in 2010. 

As founder of this project, he focused on redefining luxury in vintage and thrift culture by curating a conceptual retail space. The shop travelled across North America, touching ground in Toronto, New York, and San Francisco, introducing Brown to travel extending boundaries for inspiration and a pursuit for constant learning (and unlearning).
