With a background in fashion illustration and graphics, Australian muralist and painter Shannon Crees creates outstanding pieces inspired by nature, animals, and floral designs. Her work is elaborate, textural and multi-layered. Her canvas-based artworks as well as her murals are classical and complex in their depth but quite modern in their character. Shannon Crees was the only Australian artist included in the prestigious list of the best graffiti artists in the world at Banksy’s Cans Festival 2 in London.
Transforming Spaces with Tales about Nature
Shannon Crees is an Australian artist who currently lives in Sydney and she is involved mostly with large-scale artwork. She also participates in various live shows, where she demonstrates her enviable painting skills. Shannon uses prevalently vivid organic patterns and bold, saturated colors to depict her interpretation of the world and those things she finds most precious, such as animals and plants. The artist is equally engaged in two unique artistic paths – contemporary street art and fine art landscapes, which is captured in her videos. Shannon was the winner of Leichhardt councils’ Wall to Wall competition, with her amazingly giant 80 square meter mural and consequently, she was featured on many television shows – for instance, Getaway, The Apprentice, and ABC News artist segment. She was also invited by the Chinese Government to do a mural painting demonstration in China, which was a great honor.
