Los Angeles based artist Meagan Boyd‘s work often depicts utopian atmospheres filled with modern day nymphs, deities, holy beings, and party monsters who reveal the the interconnectivity of animals, people and nature. Through her art making process, she explores the transcendence between dreams and waking-life in the context of magic and myth.  Using an explosive color palate along with intricate line-work, her freakishly folkish style combines the nostalgic essence of the fauves juxtaposed with a neon-like urban glow.
