Tobi Seymour – back from the Bagels

Tobi Seymour

Lovely to hear news of many OWs at our London dinner; first mention goes to Tobi Seymour (OW 2012) who is developing his career as an artist. Tobi says;

“After Wells I did an Art Foundation in Leeds and then a BA in Fine Art at Chelsea College of Art. Finishing that I packed my bags and headed off to America to seek fame and fortune. After a lot of musing, an exhibition No More Bagels in Los Angeles and an election, I find myself back home continuing to make work and hoping to do so for as long as possible”

Last year he also had an exhibition Colourspace in Bristol and became involved in Slippers, which aims to help aspiring artists exhibit their work including by means of an app. Cars have also featured in Tobi’s life. He is remembered at Wells for his huge Land Rover and he later staged performance art Carmonica Harmonicar in C Major which involved fixing six harmonicas to his red MX5 and creating music as he drove through Cheddar Gorge. Sadly the MX5 has since had to go but we wish Tobi all the best for his future art – and motoring.
