About

Seldon Hunt has been working as an art director, designer and illustrator since 1995. In recent years much of his output has been devoted to creating a diverse and highly recognizable body of visuals that have become synonymous with contemporary heavy metal. Legendary bands he has worked with have include to name but a few, Isis, Neurosis, High on Fire, Melvins, sunno))), Pelican and Nachtmystium. His voluminous output of the beautiful to the macabre to the sublime and disturbing has graced the apocalyptic sonic releases of some of modern metals most profound masters.

Everything from LP and CD covers, to posters, t shirts, skate boards and apparel have been graced by his complex visions of the fantastagoric. He has collaborated frequently with metal grand sage of the underground Stephen O’Malley on various projects. His work is exhibited globally and appears regularly in music, art, culture and design publications as well as being displayed in many new books on contemporary design and illustration.
