Shanti Shea An is a painter and PhD candidate at the ANU School of Art & Design. She holds a Bachelor of Visual Arts (First Class Honours) and a Master of Art History & Curatorial Studies. Her Master’s thesis examined pictorial and architectural thresholds in seventeenth-century Dutch painting, and earned her the 2019 Masters Prize for Excellence from the Australian National University. Her current practice-led PhD project is focussed on the relationship between painting and textuality. She is currently based between Sydney and Canberra.

Shanti has been awarded as the 2022 Grand Champion of the Eloquence Art Prize for her winning presentation on the influence of French artist Henri Matisse on Australian art. Shanti is receiving a flight to Paris, art history classes at the Ecole du Louvre, and other exciting items.

We have invited Shanti to give her prize winning presentation to our Friends’ group this May.


Please remember to bring a mask to wear in the gallery.
