In his work, Shawn Huckins satirizes social media, popular culture, and aspects of modern society in the United States. His paintings immaculately re-present significant historical artworks, painted with incredible attention to detail and control. These are combined with elements such as colloquial text and slang communication that beg questions related to the ways we have denigrated language, altered or halted past progress as a nation, and foreshadow an impending reckoning. Working in acrylic, Huckins’ canvases are beautifully rich, revealing his depth of color expertise and skill. 

Shawn Huckins holds a BFA from Keene State College, Keene, NH, where he graduated magna cum laude, and also studied at the University of Wollongong, New South Wales, Australia. He has shown his work  at galleries across North America and Europe, and in 2020 was part of a two-person exhibition featuring his work at the Susquehanna Art Museum, Harrisburg, PA. Huckins has received numerous awards and fellowships including being a finalist of the prestigious Luxembourg Art Prize. His work is held in collections including that of Tucson Museum of Art, Tucson, AZ and the Tia Collection, Santa Fe, NM.
