About the Artist:

Using vintage cameras, non-traditional processing and film as his medium, Shagawat has created a unique style all his own. With such a range of subject and technique, his body of work is not easy to categorize. However, all of his photos from cross processed nudes to black and white street art to grim self-portraits, maintain a powerful through-line of beauty, grit and unabashed honesty.

Shagawat’s photography has been displayed in galleries across the U.S. and Europe. His first solo exhibition “SELFIE” was at Freight + Volume in Chelsea. He showed alongside Peter Hutchinson there in conjunction with AiPAd week and was part of their group show “The Art Of Compassion” as well. Also in Chelsea at the Anna Kustera Gallery, Shagawat was part of the “B-B-B-Bad” exhibition. Recently, his solo show “Psilocybin Baby” intrigued viewers with haunting triple exposures at the pop-up space, Gallery 51. Currently, he is showing at One Arts Space in Tribeca. Other New York galleries include Arts + Leisure; Gallery One Twenty Eight; Con Artist Collective; 116 Suffolk Gallery; The Salmagundi Club; and The Scott Eder Gallery.

On the West Coast and abroad, Shagawat has shown at Unitard; 72 Degrees & Sunny; Melt Down Gallery and UCLA Medical School in Los Angeles; Produce in Phoenix, AZ; Dream Space Gallery in London; and Cafe Diskaire Gallery in Lille, France. When Shagawat showed at the Salmagundi Club, he was awarded the Alpheus P. Cole Award. He had previously been awarded a “Certificate of Merit for Outstanding Work” and was acclaimed by the president of the prestigious establishment as “being the oldest soul and one of it’s youngest members.” Coming to One Art Space in the Fall is the highly anticipated “NEW BRAIN,” a multi-media retrospective chronicling his battle with brain cancer.

Shagawat resides in Tribeca with his wife and daughter where he continues to make friends and enemies through photography.
