This biography from the Archives of AskART:
An abstract painter who focuses on dream imagery, pop life, and "odd-ball subject matter" (Art in America 12, 2000), Jim Shaw first came to the art world's attention in the 1980s with a series called "My Mirage," exploring the tacky inner thoughts of a teenager named Billy. His preoccupation seems to be with that which is inferior and which some would call pornographic.

From that time, he has done myriads of works including drawings, sculptures, prints and photographs that combines Pop-Art, Neo-Expressionism, Realism, and Surrealism. A 1996 exhibition at Metro Pictures in California was described as "an artistic flea market" (Art in America 12/96).

In 2000, a retrospective of his over 450 of his works was held at the Casino Luxembourg in Europe
