B Shawn Cox is a multimedia artist, juror, collector and curator based in Austin, Texas. Born in Lubbock, Texas with dusty ranching roots in far west Texas, his current work explores themes of contemporary social mythology by reassembling modulated paper thoughts and visual icons. Cox has degrees in Architecture and Law but has maintained and developed an art practice for over 30 years. His vibrant and diverse art practice has been exhibited widely and was honored last year with a billboard as a finalist for Austin ARTBoards. A large-scale solo exhibition entitled WESTWARD, FAUX! opens in May 2021 in conjunction with the City of Austin. His work is in corporate and private collections across the United States.
