Sebastian Duncan-Portuondo


Sebastian Duncan-Portuondo participates in multi-directional cultural traditions and investigates silenced histories to propose conditions for cross-identification. Stained glass channels both a sacred and Cuban-American heritage in his work. Speculative spaces implicate collective memory and hybrid identities; lyrical artworks navigate ideas of home, queerness, and displacement. Through architectural intervention, public art, performance, and object-based work he re-envisions traditions in stained glass, mosaic and light-based media. Sebastian is a Miami based artist. He has exhibited artwork and created public projects in South Florida, New York City, Detroit, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, and Latin America. He holds a BA in Studio Art and Latin American Studies from Swarthmore College, a BFA in Painting and Art History from New World School of the Arts, and an MFA in Fiber from Cranbrook Academy of Art .
