Shabs Beigh is a Cheshire (England) based artist who started his art career as a cartoonist/illustrator 25 years ago. He is currently selling through Saatchi and Paul Smith Design London.
He mainly paints expressionist abstracts, impressionistic landscapes and charcoal drawings of bulls and other animals like bison and horses. His all-time favourite artists are Van Gogh and Claude Monet. His artworks are in different corporate and individual collections in India, England and United States. He offers limited edition signed prints of his paintings.His paintings mainly focus on nature, landscapes, animals and birds. He has done a lot of paintings with reflections of nature in water or seascapes. Painting water seems to be a pattern. A lot of his early paintings are abstracts on canvas. Many of his paintings are blue which the dominant colour in his pallet. His favourite medium is acrylic on canvas which is his preferred choice of work, but he has had commissions for murals as well as fine art works.
He has an uncanny ability to convey the essence of the subject he is painting and works at an extraordinary fast pace. Watching him paint is like watching a matador in a bull fight. He attacks his canvas and steps back to observe, repeating this several times to create a unique, mesmerising piece of art. By nature Shabs is an intense, compassionate, fun, vibrant and full of life character/artist.
He has done two solo exhibitions, one being held in England and the other in India.
