Alpha Shanahan

Alpha Shanahan is a Filipina artist based in ireland. She is a figurative impressionist oil painter, inspired by the likes pf Pierre Bonnard, Modigliani, and Henri Matisse. 

Her academic training in the field of psychology, coupled with her keen sense of observation (mostly of people), influences her choice of subject/s. Most of her imagined landscapes or interiors include a person or more, which makes the work verge into the narrative genre. The works are more of a depiction of a scenario than just a mere representation of a beautiful landscape or a well-decorated interior.

Alpha paints daily in her home studio. This set-up also influences some of her works. They are like a peak into little pockets of reality in the domestic side of things.
