About Shaun In the Clouds

Shaun is covered in big, bright, colourful clouds, inspired by the ever-changing skies above. As a child, artist Ben Cavanagh spent a great deal of time staring up at the clouds conjuring up imaginary worlds in the sky. He still looks up for inspiration, and graphic, multi-coloured, clouds often feature in his artwork.

Ben is a mural artist based in Littlehampton and specialises in large, colourful designs and characters drawn from his imagination. He is inspired by street art, anime, cartoons, mythology, graffiti and nature. He likes to paint outside on the streets to “make people smile and brighten their day.”
