About Shann Larsson

 

 

Shann Larsson is a Hong Kong based mixed media artist, illustrator and formally trained graphic designer. She arrived in Hong Kong in 1998 and has since been living here. Prior to Hong Kong, Shann spent four years in Jakarta, Indonesia, contrasting greatly to her first seven years in Sweden and a short couple of months in Düren, Germany where she was born.

For Shann, the ability to communicate and create a pulse through the visual language of art has always been fascinating – a means to tap into a busy subconscious or experience that cannot always be framed in simple words. Her art largely involves juxtapositions of contradictory elements represented in both an expressive and abstract surreal manner.

Shann's work is inspired by dualities present in humans and nature, from beauty and decay to the ethereal and the unsettling, often sitting right upon the fence of opposing emotions. Dualities coexist, warring for dominance in planes of both realistic and imagined world. It is through this movement that Shann attempts to challenge her viewer’s perception. Her art is a hybrid of experiences in reality and the subconscious and her choice of elements often reflect upon questions of modern society.

Shann's artistic style involves a variety of media. Through the use of vivid colour palettes and textural quality, she attempts to communicate nuances in experience, both gentle and chaotic. The intricate precision of graphic design, the storytelling of illustration and the expressiveness of painting collide to form the aesthetic of Shann's work.
