About Mat O'Brien

Mat O'Brien lives and works in San Francisco. His illustrations seem to begin with an anecdotal commentary, perceived through the eyes of a dedicated observer. Painstakingly detailed lines and abstract prose, merge with elements of graphic design, paper cut outs, and sometimes borrowed imagery. The finished result blends together into a dissonantly collaged, to from a distinct visual language. He also enjoys drinking dragon well tea, and caring of houseplants.

About Seems Books

Seems is an independent publisher of small-run art books based in New York. Our goal is to make original art accessible to everyone. We create books that start dialog and conversation, with a high priority placed on quality and content. We publish a hybrid of zines and monographs, with each book in a solo show format: one artist with a free reign throughout. The name Seems comes from the idea that art and design are not black and white, but gray; there is no absolute; therefore they demand dialog and debate. Seems has also participated in book exhibitions in South Africa, Italy, Canada, San Francisco, and New York.
