Shane Heath is an artist from Santa Cruz California. From an early age he began using drawing as an effective way to communicate his thoughts and relate to the world. After actively pursuing formal art training throughout his later teens, he went on to study art and design in San Diego. Classes in figure drawing and 3D digital modeling set the trajectory for a style built on around figure and portrait work.
Since, he's developed a style that blends realism, street art, and expressionism to create large scale portraits that capture individuals and moments in time. His juxtaposition of finely rendered features with expressive strokes, patterns, and symbols gives each piece a dynamic feel that reveals details as you vary your distance from the piece. Known for his use of color, texture and unique compositions – Shane combines an array of mediums including aerosol, charcoal, pastel, acrylics, and house paints to develop his works.
An emerging talent in the California art scene, Shane is commonly seen painting live at various music festivals throughout the year.
Following a quarter in residence at The Vaayu Vision Collective in India, Shane moved to Los Angeles. He is currently living in Venice beach.
