For fifteen years, Shawn Meharg worked in the entertainment industry as a scenic artist and designer. He co-owned and operated a successful scenic art business, which he sold in 2001, allowing his focus to change to fine art. Accordingly, his work shows a diversity of style and subject, all involving the reflection and absorption of light by forms both real and imagined. In his rudimentary series, Meharg comments on industrialization and its effects on nature through a clever use of color and technique.
Meharg’s works are in numerous corporate and private collections throughout the United States and have been exhibited in individual and group shows throughout the Southeast.Meharg was born in Ontario, Canada and received his BFA from the University of Mississippi. He now resides in Florida with his wife, Gina, and their two children.
