Shaun Othen

Shaun Othen, a Chesterfield native, was born in the summer of ’69 and grew up surrounded by the timeless works of classical artists like Laurence Alma-Tadema and Alphonse Mucha. These artists’ opulent and sophisticated styles deeply resonated with Shaun, leaving a lasting impact on his own artistic endeavours.

Having attended the renowned Falmouth School of Art, Shaun discovered his passion for figurative work. With a strong focus on oils, he strived for nothing less than photographic realism in his creations. His exceptional talent did not go unnoticed, as he soon signed a contract with the esteemed Artists Partners Agency. His commissioned masterpieces have graced prestigious book jackets, high-end magazines, and are treasured in private collections worldwide.

Life Drawing

Shaun firmly believes that a deep understanding of anatomy is vital when capturing the human form. To convey this belief, he established the “Dev Art Space” and currently co-runs life-drawing classes alongside his wife on a regular basis. Through this venture, he not only hones his own drawing skills but also provides guidance and support to fellow artists, encouraging them to delve into their own expressive approaches and break away from rigid photographic styles.

This principle of pushing boundaries extends to Shaun’s artistic process as well. He replaces brushes with an array of unconventional tools, freeing himself from the confines of traditional paint language. Striking a harmonious balance between realism and abstraction, Shaun’s focus lies on elements like texture and line, creating a visually captivating aesthetic that speaks volumes about his artistic vision.
