MEG BIRAM X DENADA #BENDTHERULES ARTWORK COLLABORATION

meg biram x virginia of denada 600

I love a good artist collaboration, especially one that’s really out there. After watching this HP x360 Behind the Scenes video it made me want to collaborate with another artist by doing something completely outside the box.

What struck me most about the video was how the all of the artists stayed true to their own art, and then it was layered on top of each other to create one thing. I wanted to #bendtherules in a similar way of layering in my collaboration with another artist.

My mind immediately went to putting together two completely different mediums in two different industries. This is where Virginia of DeNada came in. Virginia is a fellow creative entrepreneur in DC — she owns an accessories line specializing in handmade knits.

Putting an abstract painter (me) and a knitwear designer (Virginia) together to create a piece of artwork — that’s definitely bending the rules. How would one of my paintings and one of her knit pieces come together to create one cohesive piece of art!?!

I contacted Virginia to see if she’d be up for the unique collaboration and she was beyond excited. My concept was for both of us to do our works of art separately and bring them together to create the piece. We would plan for them to compliment each other but the works would obviously be two separate pieces layered together, similar to the HP x360 Behind the Scenes video (make sure you check the video out here!), but also completely different.

Be sure to watch our video (below) to see how it all came together!
