Sefton Rani's work involves the concept of “urban tapa” which is taking the traditional form of tapa and reenergising it with modern materials, methods and motifs that reflect the contemporary environment we live in.

His work is primarily created with the use of paint skins where paint is applied on glass or plastic and when dry, peeled off and collaged to form layers that represent time and the history of the object or surface.

The aesthetics of his work can be described as the “beauty that is imperfect, impermanent and incomplete”.
