Featured Artist for February 2023 – Rob Shaw

Rob Shaw is a visual artist and designer living in Truro, Nova Scotia. He is a graduate of Nova Scotia College of Art & Design’s Masters of Interdisciplinary Design and has worked as a freelance designer but more recently has focused his attention primarily on visual art.

Rob’s current passion is painting rural landscapes seen through the lens of geometric abstraction. Using a hard-edge approach, he’s able to transform his subject matter into simplified 2D geometric shapes that when combined with bold and vibrant color choices set them apart from traditional landscape paintings.
Rob is a member of the Truro Art Society and Visual Arts Nova Scotia (VANS).Rob’s paintings, drawings and wearable art can be found in galleries and private collections throughout Canada.
