This Saturday, San Francisco’s Cartoon Art Museum will be hosting their winter holiday Cartoonist-in-Residence. The artist is Claire Tiwald, and she is a mixed media artist who works with various mediums including graphite, ink, sculpture, and writing. She is a recipient of a Bachelor of Art from Nebraska’s Wesleyan University, and is currently a resident of Oakland.
Also according to the Cartoon Art Museum’s website, much of Tiwald’s life has been spent on the road, which usually leads to inspiration to creative practice that focuses on exploration. Her works has been exhibited in venues across North America, and have been available for commissions, exhibitions, publishing, gallery representation, and artistic partnerships. Tiwald is also set to make her first foray into graphic novelist with a book titled Age of Avarice, which focuses on Death embodied and the concept that interacts with the world, and includes inspiration from folklore, physics, psychology, and quantum mechanics.
The event is from 1pm to 3pm, and is free and open to the public. Tiwald will be on hand in talking to visitors and discussing her work, which will also be on view. Also during her time at the Cartoon Art Museum, she will be bringing her paints and drawing utensils to create small paintings, as well as have prints, drawings, stickers, buttons, and art dolls for sale.
