Shane Townley (b.1972)
Contemporary Artist / World Traveler
After graduating from design school Townley moved to New York to study under professional living artists, while also working in the advertising world as a commercial artist. It wouldn’t be until 2004 that Townley leaves New York and the commercial art world. In search of more of a fine art career, he returns to the sunny weather of the west coast he was so familiar with as a child. He opened his first gallery in San Clemente and 2 years later a second gallery in Laguna Beach.
Every painting has a history and a story behind it.”
Townley, travels the world capturing images of his different journeys, cultures and people. You will notice “origin” on the placard next to the artwork. This is the country or city the idea and concept of each piece originated from. “Executed” is where the painting was created. Most of his pieces are created in a 2000 square foot studio just outside of Laguna Beach. All of Townley’s work is original, one of a kind works of art and is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
Currently, Townley is an internationally renowned artist. His work can be found in private and corporate collections worldwide. Townley has exhibited in shows in New York, Beverly Hills, San Diego, Las Vegas and Scottsdale with connections to galleries in Venice, Italy and Barcelona, Spain. Townley is the current art director of Laguna Gallery of Contemporary Art, Gallery 104 in san Clemente and the founder of Townley Gallery and the director of the “Journey of Existence” Group Show 2013.
When Townley is not traveling the world in search of his next inspiration, Laguna Beach is where he currently resides with his wife Adela.
