Shane Drinkwater

Shane Drinkwater is a contemporary artist, who studied Fine Arts in Hobart, Tasmania and Sydney. He completed a fellowship in Paris and spent 6 years working in France. Presently he lives and works on the Gold Coast.  He uses a system of lines, dashes, numbers, and circles that reads as a mysterious coded system.  In his own words he writes:

“Painting is something I’ve always needed to do and I’m enjoying it more and more: it’s the joy of putting colour, shape and gesture on a surface. I’m interested in the “making”! 

“I delve into the act of painting with a minimum repertoire of visual elements aiming for a maximum visual intensity. Ideas and images appear through the making of the work, language becomes unnecessary, I let the work speak for me.”

The artist can be followed on his website, Facebook and Instagram.
