Marykate O'Neil

Multi-media artist Marykate O'Neil has released six albums, a few cassettes, and a couple of .45’s.  Her music has been played on radio; featured in movies and television shows; she has toured throughout the U.S. and Europe to big festival crowds and to empty seats in darkened basements. Marykate's paintings have been exhibited throughout NYC's galleries and are held private as well as university collections. O'Neil's paintings are work is filled with sly- affectionate nods to the New York School; the Bay Area's figurative movement and pop artists while maintaining a firm footing in the zeitgeist. O'Neil studied at the Art Student's League, the New York Studio School, Parsons and Mass Art.  "The more I paint,  the more I feel like my paintings look like my songs sound --- both are ‘left of the dial’ explorations of small moments. I am drawn to contradiction: bitter/sweet; simple/ layered; witty/angsty; tenderness/humor. My approach is always the same --- just to make something that can be viewed or listened to 'on repeat' and each time find a little something".
