Week 9 – Artist Conversation – Maccabee Shelley

Maccabee Shelley
Maccabbe Shelley has a degree in Studio Art from Humboldt State University and a minor in Art History. He is now working on a post-baccalaureate a CSULB. He said CSULB is more intense, competitive, and and strong. Maccabbee said he loves creating something new because it excites him,m even the littlest artwork inspires him to do more. He says his small art creations are put into a bigger piece of artwork, which he called the snowball effect. He has been in the industry of art for as long as 9 years. This is his third gallery shown at CSULB. He prefers to have his art shown at CSULB because it’s more of a solo show. Maccabbee recently traveled to Italy, which inspired him to do the artwork that was displayed in the gallery. The medium he used for the artwork in the gallery were: materials made from ceramic, glass, plaster, acrylic, and latex paint. As a young child, Maccabbe was more interested in science, reading, and outdoor activity. He didn’t realize that he was becoming more interested in art until later in college. He then realized he did better in art and started to realize he kept taking art classes than he initially thought. He said that in art there is no real sense of security when it comes to jobs, but he loves what he does. He works hard making his creations and thinks of it more as a game by arranging the pieces together to create one piece.
