Artist Bio:
Shawn Mitchell Perkins, @sptheplug, full-time ARTrepreneur – a visual artist who makes his living through the creation and sale his art, no matter the medium. Originally from Detroit, Michigan, Shawn currently lives in Washington, DC and canvases the country with his works. Formally trained in Fine Arts & Graphic Design, and a proud Howard University alumnus, Shawn has been honing his craft since an early age, when he painted his first “masterpiece,” which remains framed and mounted at his mother’s home. After graduation, Shawn took on several odd jobs to make ends meet while pursuing his true love of art. In 2016, Shawn took the big leap into ARTrepreneur, and hasn’t looked back a day since! Instead, he has developed his technique and style which is best described as layered, and somewhat contemporary, combining [sur]realistic foregrounds against abstract backdrops. He loves working with both oil and acrylic based-paints as well as unique mixed media on wood panel and canvas. From logos to canvases to large scale murals, his work can be found throughout the country; most notably, across the Metropolitan Washington Area. He has successfully completed commissioned artworks for such notable clients as Southwest Airlines, MGM National Harbor, RevoltTV, Brookfield Properties, the Greater Washington Boys & Girls Clubs of America and some of District’s top restaurants, local businesses and schools. To his credit, Shawn continues to use art as his means to “paying it forward,” serving a resident CreARTive Teaching Artist with P.A.I.N.T.S. Institute, a DC non-profit organization that provides STEM+Arts programs and activities for youth in underserved communities. With the nickname “SP the Plug”, Shawn loves to trademark most pieces with an electrical outlet or plug of some sort. It represents how he uses his art to connect with others and serves an acronym for “Painting a Legacy Under God.”
