Sean Whalley was born in St. Catharines, Ontario and moved to to Regina in 1997. Between a BFA from York University and an MFA at the University of Regina, Sean studied the old world technologies of blacksmithing and coopering. Given his interest in obsolete technologies, nostalgia and displacement play a primary role in the narratives he explores. Sean utilizes discarded/recycled materials for the bulk of his work in an attempt to realize a sustainable practice. He is currently Head of Sculpture and an Assistant Professor in Visual Arts at the University of Regina.
