Meegan Barnes

Meegan Barnes is a Los Angeles based multidisciplinary artist, sculptor and illustrator. Her work is cheeky, irreverent and empowering. She tries to combine the feminine with the feminist motifs.

Meegan grew up in the Bay Area and received a BFA in illustration from CCAC. She moved to New York after graduating and illustrated for the fashion, beauty and music industries for many years before eventually discovering ceramics. It was after returning from a surf trip in Brazil that she sculpted her first butt and has been honing her artistry ever since.

Her sculptures are rooted in the tradition of craft with nods to ancient artifacts and folklore, spiritual symbolism, warrior women and pop culture. The sculptures act as a vehicle for artistic expression and social commentary. Each set of curves is unique with a very individual personality.
