Artist Biography

Kelsey Montagues’ interactive art murals reflect a unique worldview. Originally from Colorado, Montague has lived in Florence, London, New York City and Los Angeles. Singer Taylor Swift has shared a photo of her standing in front of the stunning wings in New York City.

Each work is intuitively created, revealing multiple, intricate layers. These ‘drawings within drawings’ are imbued with memories, dreams, emotions and, above all, the artist’s belief that everyone should have the opportunity to become a ‘living work of art.’
