Angie Mason was born in Northern New Jersey but was uprooted quite often during her younger years. This chaotic, disjointed upbringing helped inform her visual imagination and sensibilities. Currently Angie took root in Northern New Jersey where she resides and works. She is a 1997 graduate of Parsons School of Design in New York City. Her extensive body of work has centered on a visual examination of modern life in a unique and sometimes frightening look through a ‘grotesque folk-pop lens’ of character narratives. Angie has had solo and group exhibitions in both museum and galleries throughout the United States and internationally.
