Galina Munroe’s mixed-media canvases blend figuration and abstraction, simplifying floral arrangements, wine bottles, cars, and other everyday objects into rudimentary shapes and compelling colors. She combines painting and sewing, often applying and stitching cut canvas fragments to her works. In 2014, Munroe received her undergraduate degree from the European Academy of Art in Brittany, and two years later, her graduate degree from Central Saint Martins in London. Her ebullient pieces have garnered her a strong following on Instagram, where she shares glimpses of her process, which sometimes involves her standing atop large-scale canvases to paint. While most of Munroe’s paintings magnify and revel in the organic forms of familiar objects, she has also incorporated texts. These words, rendered in childlike script, add another layer of playfulness to her textured still lifes.
