Shawn Warren

Painter and muralist Shawn Michael Warren composes monumental, striking narrative paintings that portray historical events and figures. “His work brings attention and awareness to events and individuals (past and present) that have affected and shaped cultures and civilizations throughout the world. His emphasis on narrative, historical subjects is a central feature of his larger viewpoint, which looks at the History of the United States, and the world, via the experiences of BIPOC [Black, Indigenous, and People of Color]…to communicate essential human truths, and initiate uncomfortable conversations surrounding race, sociopolitical subjects, and culture.”
