With Gratitude and Thankfulness
Fine Arts By Shurvon presents to you...
Fine Arts Theory Designer Series

Featured Artist: Shurvon ‘Shaynlicia’ Haynes
The Fine Arts Theory Designer Series:

This series was created to reflect my journey as a visual artist by trying to understand the random “NOUNS” of life through painting and abstract design. This creative conceptual artwork series has been on my mind for many years, with an occasional painting here or there as a personal creative outlet. However my love of all things related to Fine Arts started at a very young age where I was able to see the skill of making a completed piece of visual artwork for public viewing by one of my relatives who has worked on several public art installations in Seattle. In addition to artwork I also love modern dance, theatre, fashion design, jewelry making, international cuisine, books, books, books and more books. Making the HCC-Library Gallery a perfect place to have my first solo art exhibit for this series. The FINE ARTS THEORY: Season One…The End of Winter!
The International Public Art Quilt by JEG and Shurvon Haynes ~ 2013
This is a canvas square quilt that was initially created as part of a fundraising project for the Artist 2 Africa campaign. Each image reflects a message from community member articipants that were then converted into an visual image that was hand painted by the artists and compiled into one large peace of artwork and presented to the Artist Alliance Gallery in Accra, Ghana.

 *Each of these art peaces are originals without prints unless otherwise noted or featured at:
Strength ~ 2013 This is a collage acrylic painting that features an original poem  written by the artist several years ago. This particular image has several different meanings to the artist and to the viewer. Strength is a painting that reflects manhood, protection, wisdom, guidance and the plight of a soldier in the many different categories of life which include national and civilian military regimes also the veterans of all national and international armed forces who risked their lives fighting in world wars. (THE ORIGINAL IS NOT FOR SALE) Similar replicas can be made for special orders – sale price would be based upon size, style and materials used.

Gold in the Wind ~ 2013 This collage painting was part of a few random peaces of artwork that I made by using canvas fabric that was cut into various pieces and assembled into abstract fashion designs. The canvas was partially painted prior to assembly using the inkblot technique which I found to be helpful in making blended colorful designs. The remaining part of the dress was painted by using antique gold paint with a black water-rinsed dry brush which gives it a taffeta fabric texture. The back ground is made with decorative sand mixed with black acrylic paint and with antique gold run-off water. This artwork was named after it was completed because of its symbolism to the movie “Gone with the Wind” and charred sugar cane leaves which are often called “Black Gold.”

  • Winter ~ 2013 Acrylic, spray paint, broken glass and sand on a wood board. The different shades of blue were created by mixing and matching all of the blue paint that I had and using decorative sand to give it some texture, each color was applied by hand and topped with some broken glass that was spray painted to add contrast with the metallic blue paint underneath. The name Winter speaks for itself.
  • Health & Healing Bowl ~ 2012 This is one of the few 3-D objects that I created by using sand mixed with black paint and cowry shells. The gold lotus flower type shell in the center has various different meanings in several world religious and ethnic groups to  symbolize creation, rebirth, reality and the sun. The handles of this stainless steel "refashioned” wok are wrapped with cotton muslin and elephant beads for strength.

  • Gold Tones ~ 2013 This image reflects the silhouette of a women’s face with gold hair highlights and wearing one earring that was done by using an acrylic/spray paint technique which   mixes together to create a unique design.
  • Love in the Midst of the Sea ~ 2012 This is a 3-part painting that includes an original poem written by the artist, a handcrafted message in a blue glass art deco vase and a black sand textured frame of a handmade paper painting titled “LOVE,” a term that has various meanings worldwide but is a common necessity of life along with fresh water, clean air and healthy food that must be handled with the freedom of care.
  • Black will always be Beautiful ~ 2014 The terms ‘black is beautiful’ and ‘my black is beautiful’ have been used to define the natural variety of skin tones of people from African descent who have been severely persecuted, mentally afflicted and emotionally wounded for centuries by those who for unnecessary reasons despise their GOD MADE ORIGINAL darker skin color, strong mentality and creative skills. But despite the disdain they continue to live; appreciate, value and cherish all of their human qualities far above society’s negative opinions.
  • Gold Mind ~ 2013 Mixed Media on wood board to symbolize the success, ability and wisdom of the mind…Selah-Shalom = pause, think and “peacefully-mine” your valuable thoughts of creativity.

    BLKSHYNYSTRSNNYBLLA ~ Lady Shaynlicia (NOT FOR SALE) Customized hat images can be made based upon your own personal hat fashions, prices may vary according to size and materials needed to assemble each one-of-a-kind original design. 

  • SUMMER 1~ 2014 A lady wearing a afro puffball hairstyle and big earrings.
  • SUMMER 2 LUV… ~ 2014 A colorful image of a woman wearing a afro hairstyle w/ flower, bright clothes who is ready to welcome the Summer Season of Love.
 Q&A  (What influenced your artwork and style for this series)

My artwork is somewhat based upon the concept of how fashion clothing designs change according to the seasonal climates and geographical region of the consumer. I am from Seattle where we have all four weather seasons that are reflected in my artwork in regards to the color, style and materials that are used, this allows me to express my EVERLASTING LOVE FOR FASHION, MAKE-UP, SHOES AND ACCESSORIES through my art images!
Do you name your art peace's before or after they are completed?
Usually afterwards unless it was a specific name that had inspired me to make the painting from the start. However, there still may be several different name changes before I make a final selection. Each painting will mean something different to every viewer, but some of the meanings will continue to be defined, allowing for each peace of art to have its own originality because they were not created to represent just one established idea or concept. This definitely pertains to most of  the male and female images that are typically a combination of a variety of different features, NOT JUST ONE person unless otherwise stated by (Shurvon A Haynes) the orginal artist.
 As the art director and creator of this art exhibit what has this journey been like for you?
It is very similar in theory for me personally to climbing a mountain, which I’m sure can be a very physical, spiritual and emotional experience between the challenge of stopping in the middle or going forward to the top of Mt. Art-World ready to paint, draw and design more one-of-a-kind art peaces. 


The biggest misconception of artwork is that it is always directly related to a "specific" person, place or thing according to someone else's misguided preconceived stereotypical assumptions of the artists capabilities, purpose and reasons for making innovative Fine Arts. Another myth is that visual artists should challenge themselves by having envious competition with other visual artists "This does not work for most artist because they don't operate according to those type of negative motivation strategies.

A visual display of eccentric art "peaces" by fine arts visionary Shurvon Haynes. This exhibit features images that reflect her past, present and future journey as an African-American Black female artist in the 21st century. Each art-peace is a visual interpretation of the people, places, words and things that has had a significant impact on the artists at some point in her life. This exhibit is a combination of history, herstory, love, nature, intellect, spirit, mind, soul and fashion. It is also the beginning of the artists first Fine Arts Designer Series that will be created according to the four seasons: Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall. Making this exhibit innovative, colorful and spontaneous in its constructive concepts.
