About Shawn Mitchell Perkins
When you think of art and passion, Shawn Perkins, also known as “SP the Plug,” is a man who truly loves the expression and human creative skill. He is a one-of-a-kind artist. His inspiration to become an artist was born through his desire to express himself and his past experiences through painting. He co-founded the company, The Real Perkasso, LLC, showcases his creative and graphic design endeavors.
The Michigan native received the Evelyn & Milton Taup Art scholarship at Albion College for its Fine Arts program based on his outstanding high school academics. Two years later, he transferred to Howard University, to pursue his degree in Graphic Design.
Most of Perkins’ work emulates some part of the human figure. He draws inspiration from the artists he admires like Salvador Dali, Basquiat, Banksy, Kehinde Wiley and Picasso. His style of painting isn’t necessarily one specific style but a clash of realism, expressionism, abstract, and contemporary.
Perkins not only enjoys making art but one day he hopes to develop his own T-shirt line and open a design workshop center, where kids or adults can have their project completed.
