Whisk to the Amalfi Coast; a breath-taking paradise overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Your mind will embrace this cultural encounter, while your soul attains pure harmony. The Undersea is a culturally complex aroma of tart Japanese grapefruit, Calabrian Bergamot, fresh Osmanthus, a magnificent marine note and dew-covered watercress. The artwork is by world renowned artist and friend Jaff Noel Seijas.
Jaff Noel Seijas is an American artist and illustrator. After studies at the Atlanta College of Art, he began exhibiting his art in galleries as early as 1971 at the Reese Palley Gallery in Atlantic City, New Jersey and the Galarie Biesj in Amsterdam, Netherlands. One of his professors at the Atlanta College of Art was William Van Hettinga who took an interest in him and provided private instruction. It was through Van Hettinga that Seijas was introduced to Nan Hoover. He studied with her in Amsterdam which led to his exhibition at the Galarie Biesj. Ms. Hoover eventually became an internationally esteemed installation artist and a professor at both the Kunstakademie in Dusseldorf, Germany and the Rietveld Akademie in Amsterdam. He has been listed in Art in America Annual in both 1985 an 1999-2000. His theme is often mythological at times sharp social commentary. He did a series of large illustrations for John Bunyan’s The Pilgrim Progress, which are in a private collection. He also made handmade books which are also privately owned. With encouragement from Yeats scholar, George Mills Harper in 1989 he interpreted Yeats’ 28 phases from his book A Vision. Mr. Seijas continues to paint. His latest work is a deeper exploration of the spiritual nature of man and the potential for self-actualization.
