Tellers Bio: A wise person once said to David Sequeira, 'Life is a journey, not a destination'. That person was Oprah Winfrey who has been David's guiding light in his torturous quest to embrace post millennium minimalism after years of late 20th century hoarding. More likely to read Smith than Frankie, to browse Ebay than Etsy and wear Bonds than bondage, David aspires to hosting his own show on the home shopping network where he can lend his credibility to cubic zirconia and other phenomena of our time.
Born in New Delhi India and educated in Essendon, Melbourne David is no stranger to the suburbs. Like an astute Margaret Mead, he watched as Essendon emerged from a dusty working class town to position itself as the high priestess of the federation picket.
Extensive work in art history and art museums coupled with years of watching reality TV have fanned David's interest in the blurry zone between the beautiful and the down right tacky. An advocate of pop songs as poetry, David will find the Keats within the Kylie and the Wordsworth in the Whitney.
These spaces between profundity and banality lie at the heart of all of his endeavours which include roles as visual artist, arts policy writer and consultant, art museum educator and founder and key facilitator of the training and development program Art Business. www.davidsequeira.com
