Drawing, Mixed Media, Painting

Shaw, Jon

About the artist
My work explores the eclectic grandeur of Vancouver's less-favoured locales. I explore, document, and recreate scenes from alleyways, homes, and industrial areas that I find visually appealing. I am not often drawn to the beautiful facades of things, instead favouring the interesting story behind-the-scenes. I am particularly drawn to imagery that is heavily layered, dense, grimy and textured. My work often blends imagery together to further emphasize the eclectic nature of the spaces that I find so wonderfully interesting and beautiful in our city. I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from Mount Allison University in 2008. In 2010 I relocated to Vancouver to begin my professional studio practice.
