Sheehan was born in Birkenhead, England, 1986. He obtained his BA Fine Art Degree from Wirral Metropolitan College in 2014, before attending Liverpool John Moores University to obtain an MA in Fine Art in 2016.
In 2016, Sheehan was selected as one of ten artists for the Liverpool Biennial associate artist programme; a two year programme which aims to support and develop the selected artists careers on an internationally scale.
Sheehan is interested in the beautiful, fragile, and transient nature of life. He explores those interests through performative actions and film. Sheehan’s work is usually produced in open spaces that are accessible to the passing public. This gives his work a sense of fragility and vulnerability due to the chance of it being disturbed by the human element of curiosity.
Sheehan has shown work around the UK and Internationally.
