Feature: Shawna X
Shawna X is a visual designer & artist from Portland, OR and currently living in NYC. Her vibrant and clean style has been described as dreamlike, seductive and mysterious. She injects her aesthetic into various branding and product design projects, and is an adjunct at Parsons School of Design.
Shawna and I briefly attended University together before I moved back to San Francisco. Our friendship blossomed after we both graduated and began to create art more intently. We have both shown at several group shows together and I continue to curate exhibitions with her work included. Nowadays as we live worlds apart, our slender interactions are shared through brief emails and phone calls about creative goals, upcoming milestones and, but of course, consequences of having tiger moms growing up.
Over the last few years, Shawna has become well known in the art and design community. She creates very quality work as she's weaves through both worlds. I am always amazed by her progress and how she continues to push the boundaries of her style/work. I'm proud to call her a friend. Check out her amazing work below.
