Work ships from Los Angeles.
LA-based artist Meg Zany first took her work to the street in 2016, and since then she’s produced in dozens of cities, including in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, New York City, New Orleans, Montreal, London, and Paris. The renegade nature of her work in some of these cities’ unsanctioned locations is playfully contrasted with its effusive positivity, often pairing text with her figures to more intimately connect with her viewer. Instilled with a love of flight at a young age, her work uses images of aviation—perhaps most iconically, a stenciled portrait of Amelia Earhart—to inspire and motivate as they rally to an optimistic future, paying special concern, in the male-dominated world of street art, to women, like Zany herself, that disrupt forces of misogyny.
