Commissions

Shan is happy to work on Bespoke projects, so please get in touch if you have something in mind these will be looked at on an individual basis.

Previous clients Shan has calaborated with are:

VitalArts.

Barts and the London NHS Trust recently installed in the Chemotherapy Department are three new interrelated commissions that each explore light, shadow and reflection while striving to bring echoes of the natural world into the hospital. This ensemble of works, which includes glass, porcelain, gilding, and silver leaf brings a restrained elegance and calm to the department with transparent, white, or highly reflective surfaces throughout.
