Shannon "Shan" Fannin is a Texas-based artist who is one of the foremost, realist painters of vehicles in the United States! She is an internationally-acclaimed artist known for her vibrantly colored, and imaginatively realistic canvases of the world's most beloved vehicles.  Shan was featured throughout 2023 at The Kessler Collection's Grand Bohemian Galleries in the southern United States.  Her solo exhibition in Saint Augustine will stun with large-scale, originals of her planes, trains, motorcycles, and automobiles.  Shan's unique combination of 90% realism with 10% abstraction is the winning combination that brings these vintage vehicles to life!  Her vehicles are masterfully rendered and must be experienced up close and personally.

Artist ( Description ): 

Who are we when noone is looking? What is our history? Most of us go about our lives often concealing our inner selves from the world. One indication of our true personality, is the vehicle we drive and/or dream of someday owning.​

To me, what we drive are more than appliances to get us from Point A to B – they are mobile sculptures that reflect who we truly are. They give a hint of our cultural background, financial status, and personality. By interviewing owners, photographing, and then painting these vehicles, I capture a bit of these personalities onto canvas. I create visual stories of: that first motorcycle in high school, the classic family car that was driven on vacations, or the Italian sports car that we dream of owning. Vehicles are a subject that we can all relate to. No matter our differences, we all have a story that revolves around a car, motorcycle, or airplane.​

My paintings marry nostalgia for cars/motorcycles/airplanes with the love of art. I live for the moment when my work brings forth an emotional connection with my viewer. The greatest compliment I can receive is when a viewer not only appreciates the subject depicted, but shares memories of why the painting resonates with them on a personal level.
