abstract shapes laid out on a grid like a quilt with a border

mixed media on canvas

Shantae Robinson’s abstract paintings and drawings – sometimes based on a grid structure – come alive with color, seeming to emit some sort of life vibrations. While generally abstract, in any discussion of her work Shantae will vigorously draw the viewer's attention to meaningful symbols (curves that represent "S" for Shantae, for example) and figures from her surroundings, describing their significance with her signature refrain, "I made that!"

You can see and purchase her work at NIAD here.
