Notamutemain – ARTIST
Shaun E, known in the Siege community as Notamutemain despite Mute being his top played operator, found art as a great creative outlet since he was young. Inspired by community artists such as Sunstark, he began posting Siege-related fanart in July of 2018. From this date, Shaun rapidly honed his artistic skills, leading to many opportunities. He collaborated on multiple occasions with Ubisoft, from having an early look at Flores to create a promotional fanart, to being a part of the Siege Champions program, and finally working on a bundle for Mute!
Shaun uses thick outlines and line art to create his bold, colorful artwork. He gets his inspirations from comic books and expressive artwork with movement and weight.
As a queer individual, Shaun wanted to represent the LGBTQ+ community in his bundle. He pulled inspiration from the artist Tom of Finland, who had a large influence on the late 20th century gay culture. Many symbols of the queer community have been included in this bundle, from the leather biker cap to the transgender symbol. Shaun was also influenced by the punk movement and used some of its distinctive symbols – spikes and chains, slogans of resistance, graffiti and spray paint motifs – to represent the LGBTQ+ community’s resistance to oppression and persecution.
There’s also a distinct clash of art styles reflecting his identity as a Chinese-American artist. We can note the Chinese expression present on the weapon skin that can be translated to “Paint the dragon, dot the eyes”; it is taken from a story which meaning refers to the lack of one small element from the creation that would make it perfect. Shaun is a very driven artist, but he likes this story to remind himself: even when the perfect detail seems to evade him, he can still look back and be proud of what he accomplished.
Today, Shaun is leaving his mark on Rainbow Six Siege with this bundle and the symbols incorporated in it, making it a very meaningful and personal representation of who he is.
