Biography

Susan Shup is an American artist based in Paris since the '80s. She mixes personal historical elements with those of art and pop culture, like Rock music and television, to create her witty and vibrant paintings and drawings.

Shup becomes a part of her work by exploring the multi-faceted aspects of an artist’s life such as notions of self-promotion, appearance, and timidity. By doing so, Shup simultaneously acts as both the artist and the subject in her Marais studio, known as the SHUPSHOP. Shup’s art has been featured in numerous international publications and is included in many prestigious private and corporate collections.

The artist describes her use of language in her painting: this happens either in a dada-like "out of context way", where the words are often more abstract than narrative, more about the sound: DA DA, but she do likes telling stories in some of her paintings, and they’re usually stories about artists, or the words reference particular events.
