Video: Marti McKee - A Portrait of a Shipyard Artist

This episode highlights Marti McKee, a San Francisco native, who has pursued the study of the figure with intensity and commitment for many years. For the past two years McKee has focused on designing and printing silkscreen posters advocating women’s rights, immigrant rights, social justice and impeachment.

Marti gives her posters away at marches, demonstrations and rallies.

“My art, I never intellectualize it, it is truly about feelings. It’s a process of letting the imagery come out through feeling and technique. I’m not trying to express a particular idea, a thought or feeling, but just let the imagery come out. It is just being with myself and using these tools to express my feelings.” – Marti McKee (Building 116 during Open Studios)
