Shane Townley

Shane Townley is an American artist, painter and environmentalist with over 20 years of success and experience. He was born in 1972 in Ithaca, NY and currently resides in Manhattan. He is a 1994 graduate of the Platt School of Art & Design. After graduation, he worked for several newspaper and magazine publications.

Townley’s primary focus is on global warming and the effect technology has on the human mind. In 2004, he opened his first collaborative art space and is currently featured in several other NYC galleries. His work is available internationally for private and corporate collectors.

In 2015 Townley created a collaborative art space on Broadway in Tribeca named the New York Art Center. With over 15,000 square feet, 3 levels and a cafe, it was developed as a monthly art fair for emerging and established artists from around the world. Currently, there are 4,000 artists associated with this project and in 2019, 12,000 art enthusiasts visited the space in person.
