About Stephanie Francis-Shanahan

Stephanie Francis-Shanahan

I am a visual artist from London with Irish heritage. My practice focuses on collective emotion and the cathartic nature of collage; I am interested in building a deeper understanding of how to best co-exist together with a focus on joy and the radical act of experiencing happiness in the face of political/social oppression. I received a Space Studios artist award in 2021 and have self-published two artist books which have received press from The Face and i-D and are stocked in shops including MagCulture, Village and Reference Point. My work records my daily life and connections with other humans to celebrate working-class achievements and strengths. I am neurodivergent and interested in the accessibility of the art world and the ways in which we can communicate most effectively. In December 2020, I completed an MA in Fashion Image from Central Saint Martins. I am a member of the Hyper Banality Fan Club online artist group which excites me as a chance to build community across the country.
