Meet this year’s inaugural @articulate_tampa artist and partner:
Shawn Rainey of Fabstraq Society
is an artistic soul who has been creating art since his early childhood. From drawings and paintings to poetry, rhymes, and beats and now FASHION, this multifaceted artist delivers inspiration with each of his artistic abilities. He has been influenced by his native city, NY'S diverse culture and has always found inspiration in such things as graffiti, music, hip hop culture, and deep personal life experiences. Although, he commands with versatility in all of his artistic abilities, Rainey's true passion is painting! After graduating from Thomas Edison High school in Queens, NY, he went on to study Graphic Arts at The Center for The Media Arts in NY. Notable influences in Rainey's artistic development include artists such as Salvador Dali, Pablo Picasso, Peter Max, Edgar Degas, Giorgio De Chirico and Fernando Botero among others. Throughout the years he has been perfecting his unique use of vibrant colors and defining black lines to create one of a kind abstract pieces that leave lasting impressions and make each piece impossible to forget. Now living in the Tampa Bay/Wesley Chapel area, he continues to perfect his talent and passion for art. As he continues to evolve as an artist, Rainey is blessed with opportunities to showcase his work in a consistent and positive manner. He has participated in various local charity art shows associated with Square One Florida benefiting organizations like The National Breast Cancer Foundation Inc. and Chemo Angels, and regularly inspires future artists at Member Mornings at The Glazers Children Museum. In the days to come, Shawn Rainey's goal is to continue to pursue and build on his dream of sharing his SOUL in the form of ART with THE WORLD and helping fellow Artists in the area to BE SEEN!!!
