1986 Vancouver, Canada


Born in Vancouver in 1986, Sean Shim-Boyle is a Canadian artist living and working in Los Angeles. He received a MFA in Sculpture from the University of California, Los Angeles and a BFA in Graphic Design from the California Institute of the Arts in Valencia, California.

Sean’s work centers around an insistence that identity is borne of imagination, recombination and resurrection at times and in places where and when systems and strength fail.

Engaging in macro-scale inquiries—his race as a biracial Korean-Canadian, 1.5/second generation individual; as well as micro-scale contemplations—his experience of being diagnosed with and living with a serious cardiac condition, the artist continues to explore and critique narratives of site and self.

Shim-Boyle has presented solo exhibitions in institutions across the United States including Project Rowhouses in Texas, Laxart in Los Angeles, and Signal and Jane Lombard Gallery in New York. He was awarded the Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters and Sculptors Grant in 2013.
