Shanti Shea An is an emerging artist who lives and works in Canberra, Australia.
Shanti holds a Bachelor of Visual Arts (First Class Honours) from the ANU School of Art & Design. In 2019, she completed a Master of Art History & Curatorial Studies (Advanced) at the Australian National University, on the subject of thresholds in Dutch painting.
Her studio practice focuses on questions around interiority, embodied looking and the relationship between figuration, abstraction and spatiality. Her work is also informed by issues around the representation of gender and ways of visualising intimacy in painting.
