Born in the south of England and now living and working in Berlin The Shaw’s original abstract paintings, drawings and mixed media assemblages have been exhibited and sold all over the world.
His practice centres around painting on canvas as well as creating work with other cruder more experimental materials, works in books and on paper try to uncover the subtleties of narrative and abstract form.
He creates modern abstract expressionist paintings and dub illustrations and can be found mixing records while he is mixing paint, screen printing, drawing and spraying on an array of ripped down street posters, drift wood Furniture, canvas, skateboards and handmade paper.
