Acrylic-based mixed medium abstract on wood panel. Original Art signed by Shawn Paul Thompson 2020.
I am a Toronto based Contemporary Abstract Painter. I live and work in my studio in Riverdale. After two Decades as a media executive, I have shifted my focus to my creative passion, which is creating and selling my Art.
I have had multiple Pop-Up Shows, Gallery Events, and have shown in Toronto, Mississauga, California and the Halliburton Highlands.
I strive to make my art approachable, affordable and accessible to all.
My Medium of choice is Acrylic, but I am also fond of mixing mediums, depending on the collection I am working on.
My process begins in layered applications which are peeled back to reveal an abstract story, feeling or world. My palette knife and brush are my preferred tools which allow me to construct, deconstruct, and reveal a hidden narrative.
My themes are a personal reflection of my life experience. I am always on the move, and this is reflected in my work. I am fascinated with discovering new impressions that hint at representative objects, but are blurred in a dreamlike, or abstract moment. Light, Beauty and Surprise

What lies beneath or what is behind the clouds or curtain, is a driving theme in my technique, and work. I also happened to be thinking and listening to Joni Mitchell in the studio, when creating this piece...
Painted in reverse..This Abstract Piece hints at what is hiding, or beneath the surface. A nod to a Birch Forest, with an abstract, linear twist...Perfect conversation piece for the Office, or at Home.
Like the Artist.."Always making a Spectacle"..Bold, Highly Textured, and a unique 3inch Deep Frame, makes this homage to Street Art, really Pop. Perfect for the Office, or for a lasting impression in your home or cottage.
Inspired by seeing the rather risque Jubilee Show in Las Vegas. This rich textured piece contrasts with mixed pink hues and almost feather softness. I am always exploring what is behind the curtain, and in this case what is behind the fan. Bold, Fresh, Fun and a wee bit cheeky.
