Shaun Caton

Biography

Shaun Caton is a British performance artist and painter, who has exhibited internationally since the 1980’s. He has created some 300 performances globally, working in galleries, museums, festivals, and unusual spaces. His paintings are enigmatic, darkly luscious, depictions of the ritual objects he uses in his performances, and they form strange, fragmentary, narratives. The characters, personalities, and curious forms in his pictures appear time and again, like players in a mini kitchen stink drama. Bristling with mischief and grotesque humour, they are playful, evocative, and profound.
