Martin Luther King Jr. – Portland, OR
During a time of civil unrest amidst the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak in early 2020, a friend of Shane’s who lives and owns a business, Stahl Firepits, a fabrication shop, in Portland Oregon reached out to Shane to commission a dramatic black and white portrait of the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.. His heart was to foster a sense of cross-cultural unity within the community of nearby locally-owned and run shops and businesses. As Shane worked with acrylic and spray paoints on the sixteen-foot wide by fourteen-foot high mural, Portlanders approached Shane and personally let him know how much it meant to them to have such a grand, iconic representation of a man who passionately and peacefully sought unity in a time of civil unrest in his own day.

Exclusive Tattoo Co. – Chico, California
Shane has always had a heart for the edgier, rhythmic stylings of contemporary street art culture. His design work caught the attention of the artist and owner of Exclusive Tattoo Co, which is located in Chico, California, on Esplanade, the main thoroughfare of the city. As a man of faith, the owner wanted the design to reflect his personal convictions. Shane presented him with three concepts. The design selected by the owner would ultimately become a tattoo of sorts in its own right, intended for the skin of the wall of his own business. Painted entirely in spray paint, the design features Christ, the chain-breaker himself, in realistic black and white portraiture surrounded by roses. The shop name stands out in the center of the mural, painted in bold graphic colors and iconic tattoo designs, in contrast to the monochromatic realism surrounding it.

An art installation is best thought of as an environment created by the artist for the client that is specific to the site and the customer. Think of being transported into another realm that deals specifically with a particular subject or issue. The creative considers the entire room and the impact it will have on; the space, the customer and the intended audience. Art installations are about the experience of those who view the work. When you walk into an installation the viewers are completely submerged and many of their senses are engaged. The artist contemplates the; visual, auditory, tactile, and olfactory elements of the work so that the chosen senses of the viewer are fully engaged.
Art installations make a statement that can be but not limited to; historical, social, political, economic, religious and cultural issues. Some installations can be funny and entertaining, while others can be serious and uncomfortable.
