Shawn Hummel's (b. 1972) artwork is a mix of painting and photography influenced by formalism, minimalism, Finish Fetish and Pop. Hummel creates images exemplifying the Vegas scene, represented as lights and colors rather than realistic subjects. His photos are often described as ethereal and surreal, as he captures obscure perspectives of seemingly unremarkable subjects such as cars and streetlights. He is a graduate of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas ('01), and his work is part of the CityCenter Fine Art Collection.
The artist currently lives and works in Las Vegas, Nevada.
