Shaun Morin was born in Winnipeg 1979 , and graduated from the University of Manitoba with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2004. Morin is also known as the slomotion, which is his street-art nom de plume. His art work ranges from oil paintings on canvas to mixed media on paper, to hand made booklets as well as black and white zines. Morin layers together witty and imaginative ensembles of mundane objects and elaborate yet miniscule pen and ink drawings that strive to establish fantastic alternate realities. Shaun Morin lives and works in Gimli, Manitoba.
Special Blend is a mixture of recent and older works that together show a certain flavor that he's been working towards since 2003.
