Shawn Kolodny is an artist based in Miami and New York. For the past 15 years, he has created large scale installations for cultural institutions and private residences around the world. Kolodny’s work explores the beauty and geometric synergies of the natural world, and our relationship to our innermost thoughts.

His signature, playful works made of reflective steel spheres capture the symmetry, volume and balance present in both nature and design. These spheres are placed together to create new forms that reflect the vibrant and dynamic nature of the world around us, and the impact of our ever-changing perspective. Kolodny’s site-specific and shapeshifting installations construct a kinetic and immersive environment for viewers, creating space for moments of mindfulness and self-reflection within their experience. Transcending the traditional boundaries of art, the artist creates new worlds with each installation, that are at once both fantastical and organic. His practice seeks to encourage viewers to engage with the world around them in new, more meaningful and imaginative ways, inspiring a childlike wonder.

Kolodny’s innovative style has garnered international recognition, and led to collaborations with brands including ​ House of Creed, Missoni, Snow Lodge at the St Regis Aspen, Paris Hilton, Four Seasons, BMF, and Pharell’s Something In The Water Festival. He is represented by William Morris Endeavor.
