Shane Campbell was born in 1978 in San Diego. He has been living and working in Brooklyn, New York since graduating from the Yale MFA program in 2007.

His first solo exhibition took place at Artissima in Turin, Italy and is recently represented by the Bortolami Gallery, New York in 2009.[1]

Parades are of ongoing interest for Campbell, who depicts this familiar setting with its customary details and characters including clowns, policemen, balloons and crowds. This concern began while he was a student, where he made paintings of half-time parades at university sporting events. Over the past few years, his parades have expanded into more general, less specific landscapes that could be of any American town or city. The works depict various aspects of a single parade, from isolated details to full views.[2]
