Shawn Chappelle

Experimental time-based media artist Shawn Chappelle has shown in multiple museums, galleries and festivals internationally including MOMA New York, MOCA Los Angeles, the Art Gallery of Ontario and the National Gallery of Canada to name a few. Chappelle has returned after a 20-year hiatus with new explosively rich suite of audio-visual pieces, including "FIRESTORM" -
a painterly and multilayered audio-visual weave through firefighters, water bombers and the blazing landscape. A non-didactic refraction on all things wild.
