Shaun Kardinal is a conceptual artist creating form from repeating parts—one from many, many from one. His cross-disciplinary art practice manifests as altered objects, modular structures, collaborative exhibition platforms, and interactive physical-digital installations.
Born and raised in suburban California, the artist moved to Seattle right out of high school. He began working in the arts a few years after, running a not-for-profit gallery in the frame shop he also managed—where he first exhibited his own photography. In his roles since, as a web developer and graphic designer, he has collaborated with dozens of artists, galleries, and arts orgs.
He is the recipient of two grants from 4Culture, has served as a member of SOIL artist-run gallery, was an organizational member of Crawl Space Gallery, and co-founded Some Space Gallery. His work has exhibited from Seattle to New York to London and in between.
