Shanty Bean

Art has always been a gateway to peace for me and has always given me a clear view of the beauty in the everyday. Not having trained or studied art, I feel it’s gives my work a more of an edge. I paint mostly in oils, gouache and watercolours and love sketching and life drawing. I also occasionally do art modelling. My work has mostly consisted of surreal ideas that reflect my thoughts and feelings of the day which I hope viewers can identify with.

I would describe my work as a fusion of surrealism and post-Impressionism. Everyday I sit down and try and paint my thoughts or how I’m feeling which helps me make sense of this weird and wonderful world we live in.
