Shamus is a 22 year old artist who lives and works on Waiheke Island. He creates art because" it is how he express feeling, what I'm thinking, and how I experience every day life." Through colour and the physicality of applying paint to the surface of a canvas. Shamus' interest lies in the movement he creates within a piece, through thick and thin lines, multiple layers, the shapes and colours interconnecting with each other. The splatters of paint that form shapes, the space between and the colours that become. Creating more flow between each stroke, drip, scrape and splash.
