Abstract art enables communities to perceive beyond the tangible for it is an exploration into the unknown.

Karri McPherson is a contemporary Visual Artist based in Canberra, Australia. Her distinctive geometric art practice spans various mediums including painting, murals, illustration, graphic design, and public art. Karri completed a Bachelor of Creative Arts (HONS) at the University of Southern Queensland graduating with First Class Honours in early 2020. Her work often features bright, eye-catching colour fields and graphic line work that reference contemporary architecture, the digital age, and the interrelation between human experiences.
By using bold colours, playful patterns, and precise shapes, Karri's paintings embellish homes and businesses with modern, eye-catching murals that add a unique aesthetic edge to any space. Karri uses hard-edge, architectural forms overlaid with linear patterns to connect the urban and natural environment, often creating multi-dimensional visual spaces that serve as a metaphor for the interconnected ways we relate to places and to one another. Her dynamic artwork emphasises rhythm and movement and the visual interaction between shapes reflects an active and engaging interaction between people and their wider communities.
Karri's explosively colourful paintings can be found all throughout the East Coast of Australia, with each artwork exploring styles, forms, and concepts unique to each project. Her vibrant murals infuse private and public spaces with vitality through her skilful use of shape, form and colour, bringing character, charisma, and life to any space. Karri's paintings serve as a reminder that we share a universal human experience and together we can process encounters, find connections, and create meaningful impact through the shared experience of abstract art.
