Artwork by Shaun McIntosh
19 year old Gold Coast based artist Shaun McIntosh, attributes much of the colourful and vibrant subject matter of his work to his love for all things eccentric.
Graduating high school in 2006, McIntosh has chosen to focus entirely on the development of skills through his own experimental means.
This young artists' promising career has come in leaps and bounds over the past 12 months with many sales to private collectors and the showing of his first solo exhibition.
Held in South Brisbane at a popular hangout spot for locals, Paladar Fumior Salon provided the perfect place for McIntosh to make his début into the art world.
Understanding the characters in which this artist is trying to create has given him an appetite for the narrative, with each work now demanding it's story be realised.
Recent works by Shaun McIntosh go one step further with the use of heightened tactility, he has begun incorporating such materials as glass, resign and paper Mache' and Gold leaf as well as other found objects.
What most defines his work though is the element of fun and his reckless attention to detail.
Interpreting the world as he sees fit, this young artists continues to create both beautiful and intriguing works that are an asset to both his portfolio and more so your art collection.
