Andaz 5th Welcomes New Artist

Artist Shawn Washburn is the latest artist to paint the doors to the bar downstairs in our rotating tbdART program.  Shawn is a conceptual artist and mixed media manipulator often working with pencil, paint, digital, and a variety of sculptural mediums.  He co-directed & edited the award winning feature short This Shining Night, starring Eric Roberts and Kevin Brown which was accepted into 24 festivals including the Cannes Film Festival.  He has participated in group shows at the MoMa, exhibited at the Manhattan Borough President’s Office and has premiered installations at the Tunnel. Shawn is currently the President of T.O.A.S.T. — the Tribeca Open Artist Studio Tour that takes place in New York City every May.  His mural reflects NYC’s state of constant change and perpetual motion, as a place of inspiration, optimism and rebirth. A city with its own “state of mind.”  And although, when we think of NY we may think metal, glass and concrete, it is also a place of great biological diversity, from which collectively, flow ideas that spread through our cultural.  To see images of Shawn working on the door click here:
