Sebastian Duverge

Sebastian Duverge was born in NYC and has lived in Louisville for most of his three decades. A child of immigrants from the Dominican Republic, Sebastian grew up bilingual, speaking both English and Spanish. He is on the autism spectrum and does not communicate much with his words. Sebastian speaks through his artwork. He has always been surrounded by creative people, from his mother to art teachers, from mentors to his studio team now. He found his voice through art as a child and has used it to shout joyfully ever since!

In 2020, he started his independent business, Sebastian Duverge Studios, and in 2021, he was accepted as an official Kentucky Crafted artist. Sebastian enjoys the entire process of creating art, from the first sketch to the very last touch on his canvases. The happiness his subjects bring him is contagious to anyone who experiences his work. Drawing is his favorite medium. But in recent years, he has also become renowned for his vibrant mosaics, delicate paper weavings, and saturated paintings.
