We’re still getting ready for “The Goblin Universe” show on June 2nd with Matt Furie and Michelle Devereux.
Here is a quick Q&A we did with Michelle:
Where did you grow up? and where are you currently living/working? I grew up in Dallas, went to school in upstate New York, lived in New York City till my apartment burned down, and now I live and work in Austin, Texas.
Have you always wanted to be an artist? or were there any other career paths you considered? Professional tap dancer, but that hasn’t worked out…yet…
Where do you draw your inspiration from? Hot guys, pizza, and rock n’ roll.
Who are your favorite artists? Those guys who make airbrush tee-shirts at the State Fair of Texas and Georgia O’Keefe.
Could you describe the work you’re putting in ”The Goblin Universe” show? Mostly portraits of fellow Austin artists who work in studios behind my house, hoverboarding on giant slicesof pizza over hypergrid spaces, and some other stuff.
What’s next for you and your art? Babes tubing in donuts, portraits of people’s heads exploding, and a series where I tar and feather inanimate objects.
