Meet Meg Zany of Downtown LA

Today we’d like to introduce you to Meg Zany.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Meg. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there. I am international Street Artist MegZany based in Los Angeles. I used to work in the corporate world and left all its securities to pursue my dream of being an artist. It wasn’t easy– all I knew was the rocky path to my dreams had to be better than the mediocre role of my desk job. After installing my first piece in the streets, I knew I was all in on my next adventure in life. The following day I started the process of dissolving my company to dive in and immerse myself in my new life. I took that plunge two years ago and have never looked back.

Has it been a smooth road? There will be challenges in every path, and of course, I have had my share. A lot of people want to ignore you or want to tell you “no” when you’re first starting out. I believe in what I do and use that as momentum to push past the obstacles.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with MegZany – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others. I am a female Street Artist leaving my mark in a male-dominated arena. My work is often a bold in your face text paired with a lively image that intimately connects with its viewer. I am often viewed as a political feminist paving the way for other female artists and women in general around the globe.

Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least? As a proud native Angelino, I love everything about this city –the people, the food, the culture. I wouldn’t want to give too much away about this gem of a city because then everyone would want to move here…oh wait…
