More about this artist… Shelley is a figurative painter with roots in the German Expressionist movement of the 20th century. Particularly, he has been influenced by the paintings of Der Blaue Reiter and Die Brukcke group. To gain emotion in his paintings, Shelley relies on his fantasy life and dreams to create figures and content. This results in distorted figures and very primitive content. The power from these personal paintings come from tapping into his most primitive self. Shelley humorously calls himself an “id painter”.
