Shanti Shea An is an emerging artist who lives and works in Canberra, Australia. Her painting practice focuses on processes of embodied looking, with a particular emphasis on how people become spectators in public spaces such as galleries, museums, and urban environments. Further to this, her work is often informed by issues around the representation of gender and interiority as both a pictorial and philosophical construct.

Shanti graduated in 2016 with a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Hons. 1) and in 2019 completed a Master of Art History & Curatorial Studies (by Research) at the Australian National University.
