Shawna X is a New York based artist and visual designer who’s work is an ecstatic explosion of colors, gradients, nude women, and fantasy landscapes. I am always all about crazy colors and Shawna X gives me all the feelings. Her ability to balance colors and contrast means all of her imagery is super impactful.

I found an interview with Shawna from March 2017, where she speaks about creating art during these tough times, which I found quite relatable. This is why I’ve started writing again, because we all need some good vibes and inspiration from the art around us.
Q: How do you see your role as an artist in these increasingly fucked up times?
A: It’s suffered. Sometimes I feel like it doesn’t matter. When our world is suffering, the last thing anybody cares about is artistry and creativity. However I must remind myself that being an artist is a privilege because my life thus far has given me the space to think, feel and create freely- and that inspiration from art is almost as good as faith, it speaks and helps people who need it.
