Since early childhood Scott Sueme has had the innate desire to express himself creatively through colours and letter shapes, drawing inspiration for his art from graffiti around town. Growing up, Scott began educating himself in style writing and was determined to absorb any guidance and advice veteran writers could offer him.

Almost stumbling upon the phrase "Sue Me" as an alias was an initial attempt by Sueme to cause a reaction, stand out and be edgy. Since starting out, Sueme has grown from his early days of graffiti into a more diverse artist working with multiple mediums.  The name Sueme embodies the juxtaposition between the 'refined artist' and the desire to rebel through an artistic outlet.

As his career in art has matured, Scott has found himself compelled to explore the conceptual side of his work, breaking boundaries and focusing on experimentation.  With more fine art experience, his process has taken on a spontaneous and organic approach. Utilizing similar materials and techniques found in graffiti, he approaches these works with a renewed spirit and outlook. His methods have become nuanced with layering, mistakes and "happy accidents" taking precedence beyond an overly polished product.

Biography
Scott attended the Emily Carr Art Institute in 2005.  He felt that the valuable lessons of graffiti culture could not be learned within an institution, and decided to leave school to pursue a deeper understanding through first hand experience.

Scott’s skills in colour theory and abstract painting have found him success with various commissioned projects relating to graphic design, public art and corporate art ventures. Companies such as Nike, Microsoft, VANOC, City of Vancouver, Holt Renfrew, Lululemon and Shaw Cable have sought him out to convey their brand image.

Sueme currently works out of his studio in the DTES in Vancouver as a freelance artist and graphic designer. He also travels and showcases his work on an international level and continues to be a relevant figure in the graffiti culture, aspiring to openly converse on the art form and further its legitimacy through the discussion of technique and processes.
