Pattern Pulp

Artist Profile: Julie Mehretu




Over the coming week, expect a steady flow of creatives who are making their mark on the pattern world. From color, theme, style and medium, each personality is testing styles and formats that will impact the industry at large in bold and innovative ways over the coming year.

We kick off the reel with Julie Mehretu, a New York based artist best known for her densely-layered abstract paintings and prints. While not a new comer, Mehretu’s work is continually pushing boundaries in color, movement and subject matter. The gestural nature of her lines give life to shape and color, making it seem as though you and the painting are wrapped up in a magical wind storm.
