Statement:
Shawn's work is based on his long-standing relationship with graphic design, movement and color theory. Shawn has been a part of the vibrant Toronto art scene for many years and has a wide following. His work is rooted in an emotional urban expressionist style that echoes the movements of light and color. His recent work strives to create images that represent a unification of organic, analog and fluid movement with our post- digital sensibilities.

Bio:
Shawn Skeir is a Toronto artist, illustrator and performer originally from Halifax, NS. Having studied at both NSCAD and George Brown and having widely exhibited both in Toronto and New York, his work is rooted in an emotional urban expressionist style that echoes the movement of light and colour.
