Shynola is the collective name of a group of three visual artists based in London who have collaborated on a variety of projects, including a number of music videos.

Shynola was formed by Gideon Baws, Chris Harding, Richard Kenworthy and Jason Groves in 1994 at the Kent Institute of Art & Design. They collaborated on a number of art projects at college, including an exhibition at a London gallery in 1996 called "Shinola".
