Shawn Vermette

Shawn Vermette is an anomaly as an artist. Born and raised in Springfield, MA, he is the quintessential artist
recluse. This is a man in his mid 40s who has been hidden away, sheltered, for the past 25 years. He has
never owned a computer, never owned a cell phone. He has no social media or web presence at all. Instead,
he has spent his life creating his own reality through his artwork…and no one has ever seen it until now.

The work itself is mind blowing. These are large scale pieces in colored pencil, each taking between 3 to 6
months for him to complete. When you stand before the art, you immediately see what a monumental
undertaking these works are, especially for the medium. There is a stunning attention to detail, incredible
textures, skewed perspectives, and brilliant lighting and shadow. Shawn's classical influences are clear
(note his nods to Goya in "The Procession," and Edward Gorey in "Monster and Boy"), yet the work is entirely
his own, with a slight outsider element which sets it apart. Symbolic and often surreal, his work can be both
dark and playful. I've never encountered another artist who does work quite like this, and I am beyond excited
to introduce his work to the art world. What you're about to see is very special.
