Since a young age, he was prodigious. Then later, become an obsessive workaholic, Sebastian was, at the age of 28, the second living South American artist to have work auctioned at Sotheby’s Important Twentieth Century Design year of sale.

Sebastian says: “I use technology to “steal” classical sculptures I have revered since childhood. Claim their shapes as raw material to build my own new works. It’s an act of gluttony and lust to appropriate that which belongs to the sacred world of the arts and use it freely in an exploration of its boundaries within the realm of the functional and the mundane.”
