About Me:
Bio: Shawn Ballard, who was born & raised in the St. Louis area, allows his imagination to take over to produce some unusual works. He has always let his creativity run free, be it through painting, pastel, drawing, animation, graphic design and poetry. Currently working as a Graphic / Web Designer and Photographer at an industry leading local metalworking machine and tool production company. Coming from a strict religious upbringing, Shawn used his creativity to explore or understand the different religious and philosophical views of the world. On a constant journey to comprehend the universe, his curiosity is one of his greatest traits.

A man who allows his artistic passions to flow unhindered by modern constraints. His art style is non-traditional most reminiscent to surrealism or impressionism, working mostly in ink, pastel, acrylic, colored pencil, gouache and graphite. Also known as Sage Among Fools, Shawn Qui-Qui, and De Shawnay, Shawn Ballard is a unique character who just so happens to also be an artist.
If you're an artist/art student, don't forget to add a brief artist's statement and photos of three of your art works to either your "comment wall" or "text box." This is your basic St. Louis Art Directory information. Later you may add images, videos, post a blog, and much more.
Artists statement: Art to me is a means to express the madness that slowly envelopes my mind, through surreal concepts, vibrant colors and unusual subject matter.
Art PrintsHere is a slide show of my art on my Fine Art America Website. The oiginals are all for sale and the website has high quality giclee prints of my works.
