“Bunnie Reiss grew up with the endless blue sky of Colorado and relocated to San Francisco where she incubated and nurtured her creative abilities and her need to understand and be heavily involved with community. She took some time to study formal painting and drawing at the Pont-Aven School for Contemporary Art in Pont-Aven, France. Although leaving France was difficult, she was offered a full-ride scholarship to San Francisco Art Institute, where she received her MFA in painting. Her work is heavily influenced by her Eastern European background, with its tradition of folk art, bright colors and community engagement. Her extensive travels have also added an extra layer of conversation, as Bunnie believes that being a witness to our world is very important.
Her brightly colored folk murals decorate many countries and can be found all over the world. Los Angeles, Mexico, Italy, Paris, India, Philippines, Detroit, Milwaukee, New York, San Francisco are just a few places you would likely stumble upon one.”
