Felipe Seade was a Lebanese painter and teacher who spent most of his life in Uruguay.

Seade was born in Santiago de Chile, the elder son of a Lebanese immigrant family. Eleven years later his whole family moved to Montevideo, Uruguay. At the age of 12 Seade began working as an assistant of the Muralist Enrique Albertazzi and the painter Guillermo Rodriguez. Under Rodriguez' influence Seade took some painting courses at the Fine Arts Circle school. He had his first show in 1925. From 1931 well into the 1950s Seade presented work in many national and city halls.

In 1944, Seade began his parallel career as a teacher. He first work as teacher of drawing at the Liceo de Colonia, where he managed to paint the large mural, Alegoria al Trabajo (1936), and later as a professor of the Montevideo Fine Arts School, where he taught for 25 years.
