Artist Adds a Blast of Color into Her Gray Surroundings

Morag Myerscough’s colorful and bold designs are impossible to ignore. Born and raised in London, she loves exploring the many ways that color, pattern, and words can change urban environments.

Myerscough’s graphic designs transform public spaces, from trains to hospital wards, adding a colorful twist to the otherwise gray settings. With her mantra being “make happy those who are near and those who are far will come,” it’s easy to fall in love with her joyful creations.

“I don’t like calling what I do a style,” she told Creative Boom. “I have an approach to my work that I have developed over many years in response to doing things I have not enjoyed and want to get more fulfillment from what I do.”

“I have totally orchestrated the way I work. I want to make the final work where I can, this is not always possible. But I work on every aspect of the project. I will artwork every piece of pattern and text. With the large structures, I often collaborate with Luke Morgan on the structures, furniture, and interactions. I work with structural engineers, building contractors, scaffolders, tilers, clients or project managers, depending on the requirements for the project.”

“When I am painting a large-scale project I will call on a team of painters who I have shown my way of painting and they are paid and come and help me in the studio,” she added. “I am very particular and disciplined with the painting as it is often very complex, like a massive jigsaw.”
