Kasey Sealy, an Australian Contemporary Impressionist was born in Forbes in 1961: began painting at the age of 17 in 1978, and has painted professionally since 1980. Kasey states: “My work is a direct influence of the impressionist style of painting with a direct hand-eye coordination in front of the subject trying to capture the subtleties of mood, light, and atmosphere, always trying to avoid any formulation, sentimentality and cliché, giving the individual viewer a unique visual experience every time”. Kasey has painted in many overseas countries, including UK, France, Venice, Italy & USA. He still manages regular painting trips around Australia, as his love of the Australian bush is the source of much of his inspiration. He was previously a regular lecturer at Charles Sturt University in Bathurst, but now holds tutorials for Art Society members, throughout Australia, and holds his own home tutorials in his studio. He has had numerous mixed exhibitions as well as 6 solo exhibitions in London and has been represented at major London Art Fairs, such as ‘Olympia’ where a record price of 18,000 pounds was established for a major canvas in 2002.
He has been commissioned by the American Australian Association to provide works, painted and presented as awards to Greg Norman and Andrew Liveris, president of Dow Chemical Co USA, and Paul Anderson, ex CEO BHP and present CEO of Duke Energy in America. Commissions for 2007 include Chip Goodyear, ex CEO BHP & James McInerney, Vice President of Boeing Air USA. Kasey was selected for the Ingles equestrian Prize 2012.
His Learn to Paint “Visions in Oils” was published in 2012 and “The Art of Kasey Sealy” was published in 1993. He has also produced 5 educational; learn to paint Videos/DVDs.
His paintings have been shown as a major prize on popular Australian TV game shows, on numerous occasions and his articles on painting are regularly published in Australian Artist magazine as well as the International Artist.
