Art Thu Mar 10 2011
Well this kid's got spirit, and in the year since that profile was written his work has developed into some INSANE s*%t. He has progressed from painting pigeons and two-flats to battles between tube-sock wearing devil children with rainbow juice for blood. I guess that's just what happens when you lock yourself up in a studio with a bunch of toxic chemicals every day for an extended period of time.
Lately he's been getting a lot of attention from the local art world, and is participating in two rather unconventional exhibitions this month-- Lion vs. Gorilla's Mar(t)ch Madness on the 19th (more on that later), and RAW:Chicago's ARTcade party on the 31st. ARTcade is a self-proclaimed "artistic circus of creativity", featuring a film screening, a musical performance, a fashion show, an art gallery, performance art and a featured hairstylist and makeup artist-- all local, hand-picked talent.
If your interest has been piqued, visit RAW's website and buy a $10 ticket for the party, which will take place at Vertigo Sky Lounge on March 31, starting at 8pm. If you dig Megna's work, make sure to select his name from the pulldown list when purchasing your ticket. Viva la local!
