Shawn Kolodny ( 1971 - )


As an owner of some of New York City's most premiere nightclubs, Shawn Kolodny takes direct inspiration for his paintings from his life around the club scene. Substance abuse of all kinds and the over-reliance on materialism gave birth to his commentaries on said subjects. Each piece takes a definitive stance on a different topic, which leaves Kolodny to express his take through repetition and color, creating a euphoric sensation to the viewer. His expression of society's cycle of fake fulfillment extends beyond his metaphors and takes the viewer into an introspective view for their own life, and whether they have fallen for the same addiction that have wanted to avoid.
