“The work is powerful, made even more so by the monochrome grisaille palette punctuated by the touches of colour that fly out and grab the attention… his work puts a human face to graffiti while emphasizing a sense of ‘the loneliness of the long-distance’ street artist and the necessity for anonymity.”
“Shannon Doyle’s paintings resonate with today’s fine art audience for two reasons; credible craftsmanship and their ability to paint a thousand words. Initially focusing on a concept which he wishes to communicate, Shannon, much like a cartoonist, conjures up the image which brings the concept home, in a flash, in the mind of the beholder.”
