Dylan Shearsby is a painter and professional storyboard artist from Melbourne, Australia, now based on the Mornington Peninsula. Inspired by Andrew Wyeth, Francis Bacon and Antonio Lopez Garcia, Dylan seeks to blend realism with the distortion of dreams. The human figure, anatomy, dance and movement are central themes explored through acrylic, watercolour, gouache and charcoal mediums.
Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, Dylan grew up in Durban SA and then Melbourne, Australia. As a storyboard artist he has worked on feature film, television and major advertising campaigns. As a teenager Dylan studied Japanese Sumi-E traditional painting under the late master of that medium, Andre Sollier. Six years ago Dylan was introduced to watercolour by Melbourne artist Andrew Gemmill, who teaches a bold, fresh approach to the medium along with close study of the work of Turner and Hercules Brabazon Brabazon.
