Jon Shaw

My work is produced in a rapid and often feverish manner. I have learned that if I cannot finish a piece within a sitting or two I become bored with it and move on, meaning that work might never reach completion. This immediacy results in faster more expressive work whilst leaving me craving my next painting’s creation.

I hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from Mount Allison University. While there I focused on painting, animation and metal sculpture. I graduated in 2008 and have since enjoyed pursuing as many artistic endeavours as I can shake a paintstick at.

I currently live in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. I am an admirer of all things beautiful, an absorber of creative ideology, and a rider of busses. I consume a bit more caffeine daily than may be considered adequate, and I prefer conversation and games of chess to television. On some days I run, on others I lounge. In all cases I make the most of my personal surroundings and adventures.
