Tara McPherson is an American artist based in New York City. She studied art at Santa Monica Community College and earned her BFA from the Art Centre in Pasadena, CA. Creating art about people and their odd ways, her work often features distinctive female characters that exude an idealised innocence, with a glimpse of hard earned wisdom in their eyes. People and their relationships are a central theme throughout her work. She explores through portraiture the realms of our psychological states via myths, legends, astronomy, physics, nature, love, loss, childhood and good old life experience. Tara exhibits her art prints and serigraphs in fine art galleries all over the world and she has created numerous gig posters for rock bands such as Beck, Modest Mouse and Mastodon. ELLE Magazine referred to her as ‘the crown princess of poster art’.
