Myasia Dowdell with Spike Lee

Myasia Dowdell with Spike Lee

Myasia’s work is equal parts imagination and careful observation. Myasia alternates between naturalistic portraits of her favorite celebrities and cartoonish renderings of fantastic creatures, including her “seasonal sheep” - a character of her own invention with features that change with the seasons. Myasia often includes short, aspirational phrases in her drawings. Myasia’s work is widely collected, with several of her paintings in the collection of Spike Lee.
