Shane Bowden: Chanel No 5

Regular price $750.00

Shane Bowden (Australian, 1974): Channel No 5, 20th century. Acrylic on canvas signed lower left. Unframed.
Shane Bowden is a contemporary Neo Expressionist, Pop artist, photographer and printmaker. He is well known around the globe for his vibrant, colorful pop art silkscreen works reminiscent of Andy Warhol and Robert Rauschenberg. His current oevre of work is deeper and best characterised as Pop- straction meets Neo Expressionism. Themes revolve around his love of travel, the culture and color of the places he explores and the people he meets. Layered pallettes of color give way to loose charcoal and graphite figurative or written ideas, that are then heavily defined with oil stick and paint to contrast and give the paintings a sometime lurid yet harmonious feeling.
Daring and dynamic, Street Art has roots in a controversial past. Long-considered vandalism, it was during the 1970s and 1980s that artists including Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring revolutionized the aesthetic, bringing their individual styles to a fine art audience and leading the way for the next generation of artists that includes the likes of Barry McGee, Invader, Mr. Brainwash, Banksy, and Brazilian twins Os Gemeos.
