Morgan’s body of work entitled “Raining Cows”, expresses the inspiration he gets from rain, colour and his appreciation of cows. He uses rain as a filter to distort and create different levels of abstraction.The cows are graphic, however, his work is painted on layers to the feeling of rain. One can actually see the layers and splashes of rain, creating a 3D like floating effect.The colours, the clouds, the rain and the graphic application all come together to create a happy and calming effect. In these stressful and turbulent times, Morgan wants “Raining Cows” to make people happy and to make them smile.
In Spring 2019, Morgan will be launching the “Raining Cows Art Series” Jacket Collection. It is where art, fabric and imagination come together to create magic. These silk hand made bomber jackets will be available for men and women.
