Folk-Inspired Murals by Bunnie Reiss



Bunnie 'Bonnie' Reiss is an artist based in Los Angeles well known for her whimsical and folk inspired murals. She likes to paint in active community spaces such as schools and neighborhoods where people are walking their dogs and stopping to view her work. She acknowledges that these people are often grateful that someone would take the time to beautify their neighborhood. 

"She is fearless in her making and wishes to create spaces and paint walls where people feel safe and can imagine a world that is beautiful and gentle."

She creates the murals both solo and in collaboration with other artists from other parts of the world. Apart from painting she makes costumes and installations.
