Known as the Shaw since childhood, I am a graffiti artist turned canvas freestyler. I have always painted to keep positive, viewing the brighter side of life from the other side of the fence.

My work is unrestrained Neo-expressionism, my goal is to create interesting, beautiful work that makes people smile.

The paintings evolve onto the canvas and anything else that stands before me, its this process that I find the most exciting, like opening a door inside myself and watching to see what happens via the Technicolor utterings of a spray can.
