Shannon Keane is a young and inspiring contemporary visual artist.ย Like many of his peers, his artistic capability has its roots in the world of graffiti, tagging and street art as a youth on the streets of โBurn Cityโ (Melbourne). Such has his progression been that over the last decade he has now worked for quite a number of corporate clients such as LโOreal and Flight Centre and he has exhibited widely in Melbourne and Sydney.
In 2008-9, with some foresight and ambition, Shannon decided formal education would provide the best platform for a career as an artist, so he completed design and illustration courses respectively. 2017 will see more study having enrolled in a communications design course with a focus on graphic design, branding and corporate needs in general.
Shannon recently added to his growing repertoire by curating the skate deck exhibition ‘Varial’ at No Vacancy Gallery in Melbourne exhibition in Melbourne and has plans to curate further themed exhibitions for Melbourne artists soon.
Shannon joins Zest Events International in 2016 as a very accomplished visual artist skilled with Murals, Live Art, Art Workshops and Visual Graphics. His breadth of capability is growing quickly now he’s working with Zests team of highly awarded, world class 3D artists and graphic scribes and with the highly experienced marketing and events management team.
His style is very much emergent, contemporary and graphic. Shannonโs artistic inspiration is Andy Howell, a US artist, skateboarder, and entrepreneur. Iโm sure youโll note the stylistic similarities. And as youโd expect his musical taste tends to drum and bass jungle and hip hop, with local group Detrimental Audio a favourite.
