Sydney-based artist Shanon Bradburn has one simple rule: “I don’t paint what I haven’t experienced.” And boy, has Shanon experienced some beautiful skies. Turning her gaze upwards, the artist exclusively paints the sky and clouds. With a strong focus on the interplay of colour and light, Shanon captures some truly magical moments. By allowing rich colours to dominate her canvases and incorporating strong contrast and textured brushstrokes, the artist turns ordinary moments into something extraordinary. “In a world where we are all looking down at our devices, it’s a privilege to look up,” says Shanon.
