About the Artist
Chicago-based Shawn Smith is best known as the artist and designer behind Shawnimals and Ninjatown. While often known for his work in designer toys — particularly plush — he is primarily focused on fine art, and creates a wide variety of colorful, playful, and symbolic illustrative works in the form of drawings, paintings, and murals. Simply put, he wants to delight and inspire people everywhere with his character-based creative work.
His "All Shapes" body of work explores ideas of friendship, community, diversity, inclusivity, and celebration. While squarely rooted in the world of art with color, shape, and composition, there's also the implication of a wide range of not only shapes and colors, but also emotions.
We are all of these things and many more, and these differences should be celebrated and supported to build a true sense of community.
You can see his work in and around Chicago, other parts of the US, and as far away as Tokyo, Japan.
When he's not working in his studio, he proudly works as the Art Director for Threadless and spends as much time as possible with his wife, son, and adorably grumpy old dog Remmy.
