This month the MF Shop is featuring artist John Lee also known as Clohn Art. Lee is an interdisciplinary artist who grew up in Albuquerque, spent several years in Kunming, China, and now resides in Pittsburgh, where you can find his artwork in the city's museums and neighborhoods.
Clohn Art describes himself as both a street and folk artist, but just from viewing his pieces in the shop, his work is also influenced by cubism, surrealism, and even pop art. His colorful paintings are often abstract depictions of people or animals and can be found stapled to pieces of wood around Pittsburgh because the artist loves to use cardboard as a canvas.
Lee believes that everyone should own a piece of original art, which is one reason his work is so affordable. In the shop, we have a collection of cardboard paintings that start at $20, making Lee's art accessible for almost everyone, and gallery ready pieces that are framed and priced by size.
To see more of Clohn Art's work, visit us in the MF Shop! Remember admission is not required to shop!
