CHRISTI MERIL, ARTIST
Christi Meril is a Dallas-based contemporary artist. Christi accomplishes her expressionistic style, often filled with bold color and texture, by combining mediums such as oil, acrylic, pastel, ink, paper, and custom neon light on canvas and wood. Christi is a resident artist at the ALG Collective, a working studio, and gallery. The ALG Collective is located in the fine art and interior design destination of the Dallas Design District on Dragon Street.
“Emotion and message dominate my creativity, which pushes me into the world of expressionism. Each piece reveals itself organically as I create. I often use layers of color and texture to tell a story rooted in my love of people, skyscrapers, and the Rocky Mountains. Intertwining modern ideas with nature takes me down a beautiful path where the possibilities of expression are endless and bring me great joy.” -Christi Meril
