Shawn Mackey was born on August 11, 1984 in Edmonton, Canada. Today, Mackey’s work combines the movement, color, and texture of the abstract background with seductive and mysterious imagery. The sensual forms are perfectly matched to images of liquor pouring into glasses or streams of smoke rising from cigars. Harking back to a by-gone era, wine and romance flows freely, as does scotch, cigars, and gambling. Together, this fusion of abstract expressionism and realism creates paintings that are filled with energy and passion.
