See Dan Paint was born in Lancaster, Pennsylvania and now hails from Athens, Georgia. He received both a BFA in Painting and a MAEd in Art Education from the University of Georgia. Spontaneous Monsterfication is a technique See Dan Paint developed that utilizes spontaneously painted cartoonish and monsterish faces to enhance spaces through a jigsaw arrangement of shapes and faces. His art is influenced by the Saturday morning cartoons of his childhood, punk rock culture, and the art of skateboards. In his spare time, he taught elementary and high school art for 20 years, but is now a fine arts, health and, physical education curriculum coordinator and a PhD student in Art Education at the University of Georgia. His current research involves framing his quest to understand his dual careers as an artist-teacher through art-based research that draws on imagery and themes from Moby Dick.
