Two artists working as one since 1998.

Brief Biography

 

Adrian+Shane are two artists working together as one since 1998. Using paint, collage, stencils, photos and video to create what is, without a doubt, pop art. Much of their work includes self-portraiture. Many piece's are loaded with fresh and well-targeted social commentary.

The colourful works address common themes that include family and sexuality and also touch on our exacerbation with the daily grind, feelings of confusion, loss and lack of personal identity.

They first exhibited in 1999 and since then Adrian+Shane have had many successful solo exhibitions and group shows in Ireland and Internationally. Their work has appeared in numerous publications worldwide.

Adrian+Shane are currently working on a collection of new work.
