Allison Bamcat is a contemporary artist and surface designer living in Los Angeles, CA. After a 7-year career in footwear design, she packed up her studio in 2017 and schlepped it from Boston to sunny LA for a fresh start with her husband. Transitioning from an in-house artist with a side hustle to a full-time artist, Bamcat has been focusing on building a fresh new body of paintings while catering to the print and pattern needs of several indie apparel brands. Keeping the ship afloat, staying creative, making new meaningful connections, and navigating a new art landscape has been her biggest challenge in 2017, with a promising, bright and busy 2018 underway.
Her recent bodies of work depict hyper-colorful animals, botanicals and rock formations suspended in candy-coated landscapes. She is looking forward to completing her first independent mural in 2018, as well as launching several collaborations with LA galleries and indie brands across the country. ☀️
