Shane Thompson - Arts Canterbury

Shane Thompson


Shane’s work has developed over many years from his time as an architecture student, undertaking landscape and urban sketches in pencil, pen and ink, to using a wide variety of media to make his abstract and semi abstract drawings and paintings.

His drawing practice with voluminous sketchbooks continues to be the foundation for all work. Small to larger acrylic and mixed media paintings on canvas, oil pastel and coloured pencil drawings on paper seek to amplify and explore visual responses from real life, often with large gestural strokes and expressive compositions, loose and spontaneous.

He has exhibited as a solo artist and in group shows and his work is held in a number of significant public and private collections
