Biography

Megan Rea (B.1993, UK) is a British artist whose practice celebrates fictitious cityscapes in medieval Italian frescoes by reimagining them as architectural fragments. Inspired by Giotto and Fra Angelico, the buildings stretch, weave and buckle, taking on the characteristics of their animated figures and disproportionate forms. Painting onto a porous, uneven surface of paper pulp created entirely from newsprint, allows Megan to expose previously hidden layers of oil paint amongst the structured shapes of the completed pieces. Megan lives and works in London, UK.
