Shane Bowden “American Excess” Original Graffiti Art Framed Canvas. 63 1/2 in. x 42 1/2 in. Shane Bowden Lives and Works in Sydney - Australia and Camogli Italy. Shane Bowden is a contemporary Neo Expressionist, Pop artist, photographer and printmaker. Residing in the USA and Japan from 2001 to 2019, he is well known around the globe for his vibrant, colorful pop art silkscreen works reminiscent of Andy Warhol and Robert Rauschenberg. In 2019, he returned to Sydney Australia and continues to work with a new, inspired and passionate drive towards his work.    Synoptic flashing juxtapositions of silk-screened imagery nostalgically recall the visual stratagems of the sixties; the collage techniques and unexpected material contrasts here & there, deliberately untidy contours & lavish paint smears meters long in these new combinations remind us that his works continue to bridge the gap between action painting and  Pop Art as well as the seminal gap between art and life which he has so compellingly carved out for himself, and so well captured in “American Excess”.   He has been a finalist in the 2010 and 2019 Archibald Prize. Finalist in the 2010, 2011 and 2019 Doug Moran Portrait Prize. Winner of the Global Art Awards 2015 (Tokyo) and 2016 (Amsterdam). His work has been used on countless Film Sets. Highlights include ‘Sex and the City’, ‘The Carrie Diaries’, ‘John Wick 2’, ‘The Big Bang Theory’, ‘Curb your Enthusiasm’, ‘Get him to the Greek’, ‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall’ and ‘This is 40’. His work has also been featured on Television programs. From the wild and crazy game show ‘Takeshi’s Castle’ in Japan, to ‘Keeping up the Kardashians’, and home design shows, ‘ The Block’, ‘ Million Dollar Decorators’ and ‘Selling Sunset’.   His work is included in the permanent collections of the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, LACMA, Santa Barbara Museum of Art, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Mori Art Museum- Tokyo, National Museum of Modern Art Tokyo and the Bromer Kunst in Switzerland.    Please consider downloading our free mobile app available on iOS and Android: House of Craven.   Have a similar item to sell?
