Meet the Artist!
First Friday, October 4, 5:30-7
at the 4th Street Plaza
Come meet Bunnie, view the mural and enjoy refreshments. Muralist Bunnie Reiss is a Colorado-raised artist, now living in LA. Her murals have graced walls throughout the United States and beyond. Having come from a large Polish/Russian family, eating, loud talking and community shaped her life. Magic, mysticism and the stars slowly crept into her conscious, and she began almost obsessively studying anything she could get her hands on. With her need to travel slowly pushing her all over the world, she eventually left Colorado and relocated to San Francisco, which at the time was a hub for creativity and guerrilla art. Her almost 15-year life there included an MFA from San Francisco Arts Institute and years of creative incubation in wild streets full of weird art and people painting everywhere. Her work is heavily influenced by her Eastern European background, with its tradition of folk art, bright colors and community engagement. Her extensive travels have also added an extra layer of conversation, which make her creations unique. She has shown extensively in both the United States and around the world, in galleries, alternative spaces, bookstores, abandoned buildings, fields and forests, or any place that seems to need a little extra magic. Her brightly colored folk murals decorate many countries and can be found all over the world. Los Angeles, Mexico, Italy, Paris, India, Philippines, Detroit, Milwaukee, New York, San Francisco are just a few places you would likely stumble upon one.Find out more at www.bunniereiss.com 🐇 🌞 🦌
