We are happy to announce the debut print release of renowned UK performance artist Shaun Caton.

Signed and numbered from an edition of 65.

13 layer screenprint on Somerset Satin 310 gsm.

Caton will perform at this year's Venice Biennale at the Palazzo Papafava. In a career that spans 35 years, Caton's performances have earned him a huge global following.
Shaun Caton PortraitShaun Caton is a British performance artist and painter, who has created over 280 live performances worldwide since the early 1980s. Often characterised by extreme duration (some performances have lasted 3 weeks) or brevity (some performances just 17 minutes), his works incorporate the installation of ancient and organic items, with the making of gigantic paintings, often illuminated by ultraviolet lighting. These works strongly reflect prehistoric or apocalyptic imagery. Caton's work evolved through the 1980s gradually forming the ritualistic hallmark that he has come to be recognised and associated with. His work is deeply informed by a study of Ice Age cave art and portable art, and in 2007/2008 he visited many of the painted caves in the Dordogne region of France. Caton studied at Winchester School of Art and Goldsmith's London, and became interested in experimenting with living art and the human body. We are happy to announce the debut print release of renowned UK performance artist Shaun Caton. This 13 layer screenprint titled ‘First Flight’ has been built using Caton’s signature paper cutouts and shadow puppets used during his live performances and formed into mesmerising collages. Over the past 30 years Shaun has presented his work internationally and in June 2019 he will be performing live in the Venice Biennale at the Palazzo Papafava. “Art is not a game, it’s another reality that we can dip into”
