SCOTT BLUEDORN

Born 1986, Southampton, NY

Lives and works in East Hampton, NY

BFA School of Visual Arts, NYC 2009

Artist, illustrator and designer Scott Bluedorn works in various media, including painting, drawing, print process, and found object assemblage. Drawing inspiration from cultural anthropology, primitivism, and nautical tradition, Bluedorn distills imagery that speaks to the collective unconscious, especially through myth and visual story-telling - a world he conjures as “maritime cosmology”.
