ARTIST BIO

Shawn Lu's work explores imagined myths and urban legends perpetuated by the human condition, through contemporary machinery coupled with nineteenth-century medievalism. Narratives of a possible dark age are documented through his work.

Working mainly with brush and house paint, Shawn creates works that evoke old European fairytales, inhabited by haunted characters and objects, quietly defying the elements and their uncertain fate.
Shawn lives and works out of Melbourne.
