This painter and sculptor from Texas creates sculptures of animals in the form of modular shapes. Shawn Smith’s creation is known not only in North America but also around the entire world. His work is original and unusual.
As stated by the author, looking at the animal images on TV or a computer monitor, we see a color picture, and not the real animals. That’s why Shawn Smith decided to create a series of pixelated sculptures of animals. Shawn was born in 1972, in Dallas. He received his education at the University of Washington in St. Louis and at the College of Arts in San Francisco. The author sculptures are not inspired by real animals; he uses digital images, which are transformed into three-dimensional pixel images, which later become sculptures.
