Grandpa Shea is a Melbourne-based artist wielding a pencil like no other. His work is confident, emotional, at times dark and filled with black humour.

One pencil and an eraser, such simple tools to produce such intricate, moving and thought provoking work. I have had the pleasure to watch Shea hone his skills from an early age, as I am lucky enough to be the one to call him son. His new work is outstanding.
