Sean Koziel is a trained artist who put his paint brushes down, right after college.  He came back to creating art, 10 years later, and has become stronger in his work.  In college, Koziel created pieces with humor that were geometric; such as, Vader.  Starting in 2008, he began to focus more on landscapes.

Koziel’s earlier works are reminiscent of Paul, Abbott, and Lia Drei.  All three artists used squares and color blocks to develop pieces. Now, Koziel’s subject matter can be related to realist landscape painters; such as, William Hagerman.  The good thing about Koziel’s work is that his brushwork changes, based on subject matter.  Mt. Sabina, for example, shows more texture while his brushwork can hardly be detected in Mt. Rision.
