About Shann

Shann Larsson is a mixed media artist based in Hong Kong with a love for the surreal, expressive and dark art. She is of Eurasian descent, raised in Germany, Sweden, Indonesia and Hong Kong. Working with a variety of media (in drawing, painting, and digital photo-manipulation) Shann creates her artwork inspired by transitional processes and darker recesses of the human subconscious. Surreal and abstract forms compose a lot of Shann’s works, intended to inspire the imagination. With the juxtaposing of contrasting elements that war over dominance, movement is formed and in itself may reflect within its viewer. The dynamics in technique are an attempt to draw the viewer into the pulse of her artworks. Her fascination with the human condition paired with various dualities or paradoxical elements such as beauty and decay is utilized in an attempt to translate emotion. It is in these places she finds true depth and beauty, something with the potential of being oddly familiar to the viewer.

Aaaah. Denial. Thank you Shann for bringing your beauty, your soul, and your humanness to the light through your amazing artwork. Those who only see darkness in it are denying their own darkness.

While I honestly don't care for these macabre pieces, all of the arts shouldn't be limited what some would call "positive". Let the artists express all of the human/world condition. Personally, I find pieces that I really like that my family doesn't care for at all. Don't limit the artist's voices and let each person make his/her evaluation.

Not just Ms Larsson.... My wish for all these talented, new & not so new artists is that they use their skills to create positive, beautiful and uplifting images. Why so much negative, gory, drab and depressing creations? If you look at the world around you and see beauty, it will effect you in a positive way. Negative images bring people down. Artists need to inspire the world to feel and do better! Images like these keep people wallowing in negative feelings. Enough with the violent & macabre bandwagon. When you sit down to a meal, do you pick the beautiful & colorful salad or the wilted & moldy salad? Please! Feed the eyes and the soul in the same way that you feed the body.
