“Gentrification,” highlights $3YM@UR’s diversity of artistic exploration with 12 very large, colorful paintings made up of richly abundant saturated colors and vivid faces. Growing up in poverty, Seymour had little resources for fun between caring for his siblings and helping around the house. Originating as a hobby, and inspired by life’s lessons, painting was a way of escaping from the stress of everyday life.

Born Marlon Seymour in Springfield, MA in 1978, he lost his mother at an early age and was adopted by his aunt. In 9th grade, he began hanging out in the streets. Seymour managed to refrain from a stereotypical lifestyle of a black man growing up in a bad environment by turning to music and painting. Today, a devoted father and abstract artist, Seymour is a man obsessed with his work and fixated by art. Self taught and still unveiling his true potential, he has painted over 700 works of art.

SPECIAL THANKS TO:Vonetta Lightfoot of Multicultural Affairs and the Black Professional Group of STCC); Rosemary Tracy Woods of the Art of the Soul Gallery in Springfield; and STCC’s School of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences for all their support for the arts at STCC.
