Morgan Shimeld has rapidly become one of Australia’s most revered new artists, gaining increasing notoriety throughout Australia among collectors, curators, and designers. Shimeld’s works are characterised by attention to structure and form and range from diagrammatic, transparent pieces made from powder-coated steel to monolithic pieces cast or welded in solid bronze or steel. Shimeld has recently worked closely with BassamFellows, who view his work as a natural complement to the brand’s well-known minimalistic style. BassamFellows introduced seven of Shimeld’s works alongside their own new pieces at this year’s Salone de Mobile in Milan.
In 2000, Shimeld graduated with a Bachelor of Visual Arts, from the University of Sydney, Sydney College of the Arts. Shimeld has been a finalist in a number of prestigious art prizes including: The Mt Buller Sculpture Award 2013, The Montalto Sculpture Prize 2013, Sculpture at Scenic World 2013, Willoughby Sculpture Prize 2011, The UWS Acquisitive Sculpture Award and Exhibition 2010, The Deakin Deakin University Contemporary Small Sculpture Award 2010, The Sawmillers Reserve Sculpture Prize 2010, and Sculpture by the Sea 2009. Shimeld’s work has been sought after by many private collectors and has also been acquired by Artbank Australia.
