Born in the UK in 1984, Fipsi Seilern is a London based artist working across several mediums. She attended the Charles Cecil painting atelier in Florence, and has exhibited in London, Berlin, New York, Vienna, Stockholm and Murcia. Motivated by human behaviour and existentialism, her work draws on both current and historic references, exploring themes such as identity, religion and idealism. In her 2016 series Too Many Kings, glorified warriors battle each other and followers of notorious 70’s cult leader Jim Jones crowd around for a sip of Kool-aid. Her drawing of a mass wedding ceremony practiced by members of the Unification Church in Korea was exhibited at the 2018 RA Summer Exhibition. Other projects include public interventions under the pseudonym PANG, through which she creates an ongoing dialogue between street art and classical art using a guerrilla approach.
