Walking into Tom Megalis’ studio is like stepping into his mind- vibrant, manic, and in every corner, the process of life being transformed into art.
Megalis works in Tyler Village, a massive repurposed industrial space on Cleveland’s east side which housed the Tyler Elevator Company at the turn of the century. Like his personality, Tom’s art does not fit a single category. His pieces combine assemblage, painting, sculpture & collage, fearlessly taking on issues ranging from gun violence to mass incarceration.
Megalis’ creations can be seen on his website, www.tommegalis.com, on his Facebook page, Tom Megalis Art, and at an upcoming show in March at Columbus’ (Not) Sheep Gallery.
For a full emersion experience, make an appointment to visit his studio in person. http://www.tommegalis.com/contact/
