This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is submitted by John Harmon:

Born in St. Paul, Minnesota, Shawn McNulty is an active contemporary painter in the Minnesota art scene. He defines his style as "the idea of recognizable shapes and structures within an irrational environment with emphasis on form, color, and composition."

He was raised in the suburbs of St. Paul and attended St. John's University in Collegeville, Minnesota, where he received a liberal arts education and became very interested in topics like Animal Behavior, Philosophy, and Behaviorism. McNulty was a teaching assistant for both his Psychology and Art Professors, and took on both tasks his senior year.

While McNulty did focus heavily on Art in college, he received a majority of his Art Education in High School under the instruction of Richard Doolittle. Doolittle challenged McNulty to examine his subject matter, and the basic idea of creativity and spontaneity while still implementing design fundamentals.

It was during this time, the high school years, that McNulty first became familiar with the work of Jasper Johns and Mark Rothko, and their work has continuing influence on him.

After he graduated from St. John's in 1997, McNulty once again explored painting. He had focused on Multimedia and Digital Art during college, so he found it refreshing to stretch canvas again and began his signature large-scale, highly colorful abstractions.

To promote his work, McNulty utilized the internet, which has proven a successful method of reaching collectors, among whom are former President Bill Clinton and former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura.

He is one of the 14 contemporary artists that created Rosalux Gallery in Minneapolis, Minnesota, which is maintained by artists.
