Seiler's works includes elements of painting, drawing, installation, and object art. The use of text and language also plays a major role - sometimes poetic, nostalgic or romantic, it is a component of Seiler's artworks or stands on its own as a work of art. In Seiler's paintings, space is indeterminate, figures are sketchy and fleeting, and text elements seem spontaneous.

Gender, Relationships and Self-Discovery

The color scheme of Seiler's works moves in a narrow spectrum between black, gray, white and brown tones; mixed variants of the material he predominantly uses: Bitumen. Wood is also frequently used. These simple and rather rough materials, usually used in street or house construction, contrast with the intimate, tender pictorial situations. Gender, relationships, self-determination and self-discovery are central themes in his work. Coming from Zimbabwe, a country where homosexual acts between men are punishable by law, Seiler's works also set an example for equal sexual orientation.
