About the Artist

Born and raised in far west Texas, B Shawn Cox ran from a ranching life gaining degrees in Architecture and Law along the way. After years of diverse business experiences and diversions, he is focused and compelled to create. His current body of work is a re-exploration and commentary of memories, understandings, and perceptions — some real, some imagined and most often adulterated. This exploration of both internal and external stories becomes visual expression of his Why and an understanding of the world as well as his place in this world.

The title of the published piece is El Roy.
