You all may know Meredith Steele from our June 2020 issue, but have you met Magik Studios? The creative team Meredith Steele and Kristen Fogarty launched their business in 2021 specializing in hand-painted murals, installations and custom artwork designed to enhance environments and spark imagination. We sat down for a Q & A to chat about how this team makes their magik.
TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOUR BRAND, SERVICES, AND THE ARTISTS BEHIND THE BRAND?
Magik Studios is a creative team combining skills in design, fine art and hand-painted murals to make art with impact. We are Meredith Steele + Kristen Fogarty, the founders of Magik, and we created a unique studio that focuses on collaboration with each other and our clients. We work with commercial and residential clients and specialize in producing hand-painted murals, interior accent painting, custom artwork, and installations. Our approach to every project is rooted in thoughtful design, and our unique concepts turn empty spaces into creative atmospheres.
TELL US ABOUT THE WORK THAT YOU DO FOR THE FRONT RANGE COMMUNITY?
Magik was founded on the idea of making art more accessible for the everyday person. We’ve produced projects for local businesses in industries such as food and beverage, retail, wellness, and interior design, as well as private clients. Whether we’re working with a business or a homeowner, we design concepts to not only elevate spaces but to also reflect the unique people of Denver and Boulder that the work represents.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR NAME AND YOUR IMPACT?
To us, art is like magik. It has the power to transform spaces, individuals and entire communities. So when we started talking about the name for our creative studio, Magik made sense. It is also a nod to our collaboration as the 'M' refers to Meredith and 'K' refers to Kristen. Our mission to make art with impact means that we create work designed to leave a positive impression on the community in which we leave our mark. We see first-hand the positive effect creative environments have on the success of a business or the joy within a home. With every project, we hope our imagination carries into the Denver community and encourages the pursuit of creativity.
TELL US HOW YOU TRANSFORM HOMES AND SPACES?
At Magik Studios, we believe art matters and our strategy is simple: enhance environments. Our custom concepts, artwork and installations are designed to turn empty spaces into creative atmospheres. We love working with people to figure out what would fit their space and their story. Sometimes it is a simple accent painting, and sometimes it is a detailed mural. Whatever the concept is, we keep the existing space in mind to produce work that complements the environment yet transforms it from ordinary to extraordinary.
