Artist Feature: Megan Arnold

Megan Arnold is a multifaceted human being known for her work as Megan Arnold (visual artist), Shhh (minimal electronic avant-pop music-maker), and Crybaby Kiki (drag performer). Using a combination of drag, drawing, printmaking, relational aesthetics, installation, musical storytelling, & (attempts at) dance, she bridges gaps between humour & pathos, art & entertainment, and fantasy & reality.

Megan has received a BFA from Western University, exhibited with celebrity cartoonist Bryan Lee O’Malley, and won the title of high school prom queen.

"I really wanna be in a close community of artists again — and have people tear my work apart until I cry"

"I’ve incorporated drag into my music performances. It feels like a natural development."
