Shalin is self-taught artist, whose talent has grown independent of formal art training. He has been passionate about art for over 25 years. He was born and raised in Markham, and currently resides in Richmond Hill. His focus lies in painting, with the use of acrylic and oil based paints. His work also includes sketches, drawings and other abstract pieces. His emotions and moods are portrayed in his art. This is illustrated by his use of colours, forms and textures. Shalin’s work has been showcased through social media for the last 5 years, and he is excited to display his work in Art Pop. This will be his first exhibit.
