BEHIND THE SCENES

Many talented people contributed to making Sectaurs such a vibrant universe. On this page, you'll find a celebration of their work. Many of these pieces are from private collections and appearing for the first time on the internet. The collection will continue to grow over time. If you are a fan or collector who has work to share, or a creator who would be interested in an interview or to share any info you have, we'd love to hear from you!
