Shawn Huckins was first introduced to painting after inheriting his grandmother’s oil painting set at the age of nine. As an adult, it has taken a route through studies in architecture and film, plus a stint living on the other side of the world, for him to gravitate back towards painting.
Since graduating from Keene State College with a degree in the Studio Arts, Huckins has taken inspiration from 19th Century American painters to 20th Century Pop artists and preoccupied his work with a contemporary discourse on American culture.
