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.
