art crawl - megan whitmarsh

color dance bomb - embroidery thread on fabric

Can you believe that this colorful work is embroidery on fabric?!?  God I wish I could see it up close.  Megan Whitmarsh is a genius and her mixed media works can currently be seen at the Michael Rosenthal Gallery in San Francisco.  Growing up in the 70s, Megan's work expresses her sense of futurism influenced by Mork and Mindy, The Muppets, punk rock, and more...Read more about her interesting background and philosophy here

trash mountain - pencil, marker, gouache, and ink on paper

sunshine lazer jazz (wall drawing) -spraypaint, acrylic, collaged paper, tape

Looking at Megan's pieces have really inspired me this morning.  And I can't get enough of the vibrant colors and hints at my childhood, growing up around the same imagery and stories she reflects in her work.  You have to check out the pieces to be exhibited at the Michael Rosenthal gallery here and her incredible artist page here
What do you think of her pieces?

This is the best line ever in her explanation:
"When I make art I am lost in the fun of making, and feel like a kid building a fort."

I feel like this is a great philosophy for life. I am saving that quote! Thanks for sharing!

That is a great quote and her creations are amazing. Thanks for sharing. Might need to take another trip up the city. That first image is totally mind-blowing.
