New mixed media art by Shannon Favia

One night last year, I happened to catch some of Shannon Favia’s artwork on display at Chicago restaurant/venue, Uncommon Ground, just down the street from Wrigley Field. It really caught my eye, so I made sure to find her work online when I got home that evening. Using materials that include spray paint, cutout strips of denim, buttons, guitar picks and a wide variety of specialty papers, she creates pieces that immediately draw you in. Birds seem to be a favorite subject and her work often features them pasted on or stenciled text that make interesting comments on various aspects of the human condition. Or would that be the bird condition?
