Shaun Burner grew up in Sacramento, California, where he currently resides. He is
the co-owner of 1810 Gallery which is known for showcasing thoughtfully curated and innovative
talent. Burner’s passion lies in all forms of art, including music and carpentry, but he is mostly
known for his stunning murals. A master of various media and styles, his work can be described
as abstract realism that exudes esoteric connection. He is keen on site-specific installations and
uses his structural environment as inspiration for his pieces. He joined Trust Your Struggle
(TYS) in 2006, which is a collective of visual artists, educators, and cultural workers dedicated
to social justice and community activism through the medium of art. Through this collective, he
has traveled across the country and overseas to create empowering murals and perform
community outreach. Burner’s work can be seen on walls and galleries across the country and
