Molly Crabapple is an artist, writer and entrepreneur living in New York. She has worked as a life model and a burlesque performer to support her art, and developed her style as house artist at the Box, a new York City nightclub. Called ‘An emblem of the way art can break out of the gilded gallery’ by the New Republic, she has drawn in Guantanamo Bay, Abu Dhabi’s migrant labor camps, and even with rebels in Syria. In 2005, she created Dr Sketchy’s Anti-Art School, an alternative drawing salon that meets in bars and clubs around the world, and published a companion book for the school.
Crabapple is also a columnist for VICE, and has written on politics, activism and art for publications including The New York Times, Paris Review, and Vanity Fair. Simply put, she is to die for.
