As an artist and psychoanalyst, creativity and the conscious and unconscious forces that block the creative impulse have been a long-standing interest in artist Mark Sehl's personal and professional development. In both art and psychoanalysis Mark finds the continuous discovery of his emotional world and that of his patients compelling. His many YouTube videos on psychotherapy, occupy wall street, street music, art, and recently The Theatre reflect his interest in promoting free expression. He has studied art at The Art Student's League and the Walden School in New York City.
Mark has interviewed actors, writers, and directors from many theatrical productions, and his art continues to be exhibited throughout New York City. Go to the top and See the Collection tab for other art works on this site.
Comments about Mark's art: Mark Sehl's "Contemplation" was behind my seat at Le Baratin Friday night. The drawing captured so much expression in very few, bold strokes. Looking around at the other drawings in the lively but intimate space, many shared a simple, direct, honest quality reminiscent of Van Gogh's "Vincent's room" or "Night Cafe." -- Gary Zamchick, Illustrator/Cartoonist "Your portraits are so spare yet they manage to capture a lot
of expression. Interesting skill!"

"Man from Cuba" (view under The Collection tab) at CMPS. "When I looked at the picture I saw real life, like I was there. Wonderful expression of my feelings. Thank you." Renata Pyzik during the Oct. 20th reception. Man from Cuba was sold on opening day. "I find Mark's work relaxing to look at." 'I love the color and the feeling of interaction." "Your paintings remind me of Toulouse Lautrec and Manet."
I was quite touched by your very poignant portrayal of "subjects" in your collection. I was drawn to both "Intimate Moments" and "Conversations" - no doubt and no surprise being an analyst as well. R.G.
Restaurant review of Le Baratin. "The little place that used to be home to the Lafayette French Pastry bakery feels like it has been around for years and is charmingly thrown together with ragtag bric-a-brac alongside with artist Mark Sehl’s assorted fine sketches to enhance the proceedings."
