Shannon Peel (born 1971) is a contemporary artist born in Sydney, Australia living and working in NYC since 2007. Shannon has had a long and established career both on the streets internationally as a graffiti writer and as an art director and designer in the fashion industry. Shannon has shown and exhibited periodically throughout this career successfully and is now excited to focus permanently on his career as a painter. Shannon’s work is psychedelic optimism, exploring form, flow, colour and space. An innate sense of color stems from 30 years of art on the streets and an energy that reflects this ephemeral and often semi-permanent environment. Shannon’s recent interpretations of still lifes and floral arrangements (titled “Still Alive 21) are a tongue in cheek comment on current times as well as a vessel to create a comfortable and original escape.
