Robin Shawn Adair is a visual artist, art educator, and interdisciplinary scholar based out of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

In his art practice, Robin specializes in pen and ink drawings and pencil works that examine the psychological currents of family relationships and domestic spaces. Recently, he has been exploring various practices associated with the altered book, and experimenting with stop-motion animation.

As an art educator, Robin facilitates school workshops through the Remai Modern, and teaches classes through the Community Arts Program at the University of Saskatchewan.

Robin's academic research focuses on the novels by Virginia Woolf and the artistic theories and practices of the Bloomsbury group. He is also examining how Woolf's prose experiments correspond with Maurice Merleau-Ponty's philosophy of perception.
