Ferrari Sheppard spends his time working on contemplative, timeless paintings. A sense of movement can often be found in his work, allowing the viewer to feel immersed in an active moment. Stylistically, the artist brings forth a sense of meditative stillness. The paintings organically blur the line between figuration and abstraction.

Sheppard is a contemporary artist based in Los Angeles. He has traveled extensively and lived in various cities in Africa. His paintings reflect a dimension of time and space that gracefully shuttles between otherworldly yet familiar, nostalgic, yet present. The artist has been featured as a guest lecturer at various universities and cultural institutions across the United States, Canada, and Ethiopia, including The African Union in Addis Ababa (2014), and Harvard Law (2015). His highly anticipated solo exhibition titled. Heroines of Innocence is set to open to the public on September 12 2020 at Wilding Cran Gallery in Los Angeles.
