Shawn Shepherd has been working as a multidisciplinary artist in Victoria, BC, for just over twenty-five years. His paintings, prints, video, and sculpture, have been informed by numerous interests such as human identity, commercial culture, and the history embedded in found objects. His current work borrows aesthetic properties from design, architecture, vernacular typography, and digital printing technology. Shepherd’s art also engages the viewer through the employment of a colour palette he has developed through the study of nature, advertising, art history, and colour theory. Value is the binding narrative of Shepherd's latest work that emerged through his comparative research into the digital currency market, the housing market, and the art market.
