Tara McPherson is an artist based out of New York City. Creating art about people and their odd ways, her characters seem to exude an idealized innocence with a glimpse of hard-earned wisdom in their eyes. She explores myths and legends, astronomy, nature, love, childhood, and good old life experience. People and their relationships are a central theme throughout her work. Tara exhibits her paintings and serigraphs in fine art galleries all over the world. Named the crown princess of poster art by ELLE Magazine, she has created numerous gig posters for rock bands such as Beck, Modest Mouse, and Mastodon. Her array of art also includes a variety of toys with Kidrobot, painted covers for DC Vertigo Comics, and advertising illustrations for companies such as Wyden+Kennedy, Publicis, and Bernstein Andrulli. She also taught in the Illustration department at Parsons for 4 years.
