Dylan Shearsby is a painter, professional storyboard artist and illustrator from Melbourne, Australia who recently relocated to live and work in Sorrento, Victoria.
Dylan paints watercolours primarily but does occasionally work with oils. As a storyboard artist Dylan has produced artwork for most major advertising agencies, several television series including SBS's 'Better Man' and 'House Husbands', as well as the feature film 'I, Frankenstein' produced at Melbourne's Docklands studios. In 2013 Dylan produced a 3.5m x 1m ten-year graphic history artwork for Yarra Valley Water which hangs in their Mitcham building.
While primarily self-taught, as a teenager Dylan studied Sumi-E under the late master of that
medium, Andre Sollier. More recently Dylan was introduced to watercolour by Melbourne artist
Andrew Gemmill, who teaches a bold, fresh approach to the medium along with close study of the work of Turner and Hercules Brabazon Brabazon. Influenced by masters such as Andrew Wyeth, Joseph Zbukvic and Arthur Streeton, Dylan's paintings seek to blend realism with impressionism while capturing a dream-like atmosphere utilising the flowing nature of watercolour.
