Synopsis:

Matt Sesow was born in Omaha Nebraska on September 10, 1966 and is the second of three siblings. In 1974 at the age of 8, he was playing a game of ‘spud’ in an airfield near his home and was struck by a landing airplane. Matt’s arm was severed by the propeller and reattached at the hospital. He lost his dominant left hand. And so his journey begins…

In 1994 he began painting inspired by his trauma and reflecting on the events of the times. Short films by Sesow were shown by the Washington Project for the Arts and were selected for the D.C. Psychtronic Film Society exhibition.

Matt paints and creates obsessively and has completed thousands of paintings. His work has been shown in numerous prestigious exhibitions and received many awards. He travels extensively across the U.S. and internationally for his shows and to paint.
