Shane Murphy is an illustrator known for his painstaking, high detail, black and white imagery. For the previous 2015 Art Hotel project he illustrated a comic book story spanning three separate floors. For 2016 Art Street he branched out into sculpture as a way of exploring familiar themes in an unfamiliar voice.
Artist Statement: Art has long been a passion of mine, but until recently, one relegated to hobby status. Something I loved to do with the time that wasn’t spent working in an unfulfilling job for the sole purpose of paying the bills. And like most creative people, most of that time was spent trying to figure out how I could make a living doing what I actually enjoyed! I never really thought art could be a career option. So I continued to work, while using my spare time sketching out incoherent story ideas that would never really amount to anything because I would never be able to compete them in order to actually share them with anyone. My comic book, Birdland, was a conscious decision to change all that.
