Biography

Simone Shubuck’s mixed-media drawings are intricate compositions full of flowers, nature, and ornate details. Her fantasies cite pop culture and graffiti, as well as art history—Shubuck mentions Art Nouveau and the Vienna Secession as major sources of inspiration. Her works are airy and colorful but not outwardly cheery, with elongated forms referencing Egon Shiele’s portraiture and gold accents recalling Gustav Klimt’s gilded compositions. Shubuck’s work is also indebted to hip-hop and fashion themes, with titles like Pensive (Chanel Dress) (2005), or Dude You Are Totally Killing My Vibe (2006), imbuing her works with new layers of meaning.
