Shane Goudreau is a Canadian artist whose works have been exhibited across the country. A self-taught painter for as long as he can remember, Shane has worked as a professional muralist for many years while maintaining a part-time fine art practice. In 2006 , he decided to devote himself full-time to the pursuit of his passion, painting.
Shane has created custom murals for a host of distinguished clients including Molson Canadian, Labatts, Bacardi and Smirnoff and some, such as the Invista Centre in Kingston and a variety of recreational spaces, are on display to the public. Currently, Goudreau’s original artwork is available through galleries and limited-edition art prints through Urban Art in Victoria, BC.
Shane works in multimedia depending on the project: primarily airbrush and hand-painted acrylic. The contrast between the two mediums is significant yet he has created a harmony when they are combined in the same piece. His purely acrylic landscapes and commissioned portraits emphasize detail, control and patience, while the essence of his multi-technique works on textile lie in broader strokes and a monochromatic yet vibrant acid-etched colour. As different as these approaches to his art are, Shane brings the spirit of the subject to life. For the past decade Shane has been refining these techniques and testing the boundaries of new materials to ensure that his work remains fresh and invested with a sense of wonder and fantasy.
