About Lincoln Seligman

Bio

Following a career as a lawyer in the 1970s Lincoln Seligman went on to become an international name making sculptures and giant suspended mobiles for atrium spaces in prime locations in Europe, USA and Asia. He is responsible for the world’s largest glass sculpture which hangs in Swire’s Festival Walk building in Hong Kong.
Nowadays Lincoln Seligman has chosen to concentrate on full-time painting and much of his work forms a travelogue of his travels around the world, notably Bhutan, Hong Kong, India, Sri Lanka, New York, South Carolina as well as to many parts of Europe.
Whilst celebrating his deep affection for the English countryside, he is fascinated by exotic landscapes, people and travel - and experiencing new countries allows him to maintain his fresh and unique perspective on the world. His paintings move from the simplicity of a Gloucestershire landscape to the bold colours of Indian turbans, to the abstract patterns in a coconut or a plate of seafood. Everyday  images are given a sharp, acutely observed, contemporary twist.
Lincoln Seligman has exhibited widely in London and New York including a recent one-man show at the Royal Academy. His paintings can be found in many important public collections including the New York Public Library, European Parliament, The Royal Palace Riyadh, Standard Chartered Bank, Flemings, Chanel and Laurent Perrier.
