Shannon “Shan” Fannin is an award winning vehicle painter known for her dynamic and colorful realist acrylic paintings. The Link & Pin Art Gallery have selected Shan’s work for a solo exhibition featuring her large scale cars, motorcycles, and airplanes from the late-1960’s and earlier. Her unique combination of vibrant color, and 90% realism/10% abstraction formula bring these vintage vehicles to life. Each painting a visual feast and a trip back in time

“Shannon’s approach to realism consistently captures the passions of not only her own talent, but also those of automotive designers and in many of the reflections, the admiration of spectators.  Never have I seen such depth captured in a painting.” -Les Kiser, International Motorsports Commentator, Speed City Broadcasting

 “Shan Fannin’s bright paintings of vintage vehicles ignite our memories when everything was shiny and new and America was still a place for discovery. When we could stretch out our legs and feel time stand still.” -Didi Menendez, Curator/Publisher
