17. Liz Mares

Liz Mares is an American artist who comes from a working-class family and has lived in a heavily industrial area. All the graffiti of nearby train cars encouraged Liz’s use of hard edges and sharp angles, while the surrounding industrial factories helped her learn about balance and perspective. But it was her mom’s vintage sewing patterns that introduced her to the wonderful world of Mid-Century style, especially the Atomic Age. “I can remember being drawn to the space-age feel,” Liz recounts. “Particularly the distinct and crisp edges. The colors were bold and a bit over the top, but it was this risk-taking of shape and forms that resonated so vibrantly.”
