Shay Kun

Wonderfully absurd paintings by Shay Kun. The tone reminds me a little bit of Banksy’s work.

  • excellent.

  • so does he paint over found paintings? or does he paint those backgrounds too?

  • rankness

    yeah looks like he paints over found landscape paintings.

  • these are great! i love the idea of a found landscape.

  • Caitlin

    It’s interesting that you said it reminds you of Banksy’s work…I opened the link without looking at the artist and thought it actually was Banksy! It’s remarkably similar to the “vandalized” found paintings of his. Very cool.

  • Shay

    just a quick note, they are all hand painted by me from A-Z, sorry to disappoint…:)!

  • Isaac

    Shay your work is amazing! So glad I found you!!! :D

  • Philip

    Your work is great and I’m not just jocking your dick man. I really enjoy your tribute to Mr. Cole and friends alike. Your collage work is excellent along side the fact that you are also very skilled with the brush. Keep up the good fight.

  • he paints the entire panting, he does NOT use found paintings–he is super talented, I know this as I represent him and am doiong a studio visit with him this week. Look for his work in upcoming Phillips NY “NOW” sale March 6 2010, and for his solo with me Jan Feb 2011. I also have 3 of his amazing works in an uncoming group show this April-May..they ARE as good as you think they are..:)
