Meggs Celebrates The Year of The Dragon

With a background of graffiti, skateboarding, heavy metal and graphic design Meggs has developed his painting skills from street to galleries with a mixture of aerosol based character work and stencil based expressive canvases. Read on for more on Meggs including photos of past works and our short interview where Meggs talks about early influences, the first piece of art he bought and what else he has in the works and be sure to check out Megg's latest print The Year of The Dragon which is available exclusively on 1xRUN.com.

ABOUT THIS ART
"The Year of The Dragon was created in September of 2011 for the 'Young & Free' exhibition of Australian street artists at '941 Geary' Gallery in San Francisco. It was inspired by my travels in Asia, more specifically Japan & Hong Kong and represents my recent explorations of warriors, demons and mythology. It's a large scale work, approximately 1.2 x 2.4 metres in size and combines several elements I'm exploring right now such as masks, demons, warriors and the female form. The large vertical symmetrical format is something i don't paint often as this piece was specifically created as a centerpiece for my section in the exhibition. I would say this piece took 1-2 weeks to complete." - Meggs

Although often playful references to 1980's skate graphics, Meggs street work still has an element of menace and much of his street and gallery work explores the notion of 'duality' and search for internal balance. Reflecting on personal experiences, music and social trends, Meggs produces energetic and subverted collages of hybrid characters & pop culture symbology that play with emotion, morals and personal rights in an attempt to balance visual form and intuitive abstraction.

This RUN comes signed, numbered and with a Certificate of Authenticity from Meggs and 1xRUN
