about the sheep

apathetic sheep are sheep that say MEH, created by mixed media artist Tanya Doan. They were born and raised in NYC and have now flocked to Berlin.

The sheep came into being as random doodles back in 2007, then featured in some experiments with collage & image transfers on wood panel.  They now converge in apathetic flocks in both analog and digital spaces, taking form in a variety of visual media amidst fields of patterns and geometry.

apathetic sheep can be found in the wild as artwork and illustration.  They generally give zero f**ks, and elicit amused giggles through their absurd and half-hearted “antics”.


Every once in a while there will be a sheep who is not apathetic, but those are rare sightings. Most of them are...well...sheep.

Some additional fun facts about Tanya:


Why sheep? 

Why not?  :)

But I thought those were clouds. 

They are sheep, but we understand why such a mixup could occur.


Is there a difference between the analog and digital sheep?

Analog apathetic sheep are shiny! They are pearlescent, and sometimes glittery or holographic as nature intended; while digital counterparts are typically….pixels. The artworks explore more abstract concepts while the digital work tends to be a little bit more straightforward.
