Morag Myerscough

Founder and Designer
Studio Myerscough
United Kingdom

Morag’s mantra is ‘make happy those who are near and those who are far will come’. Born and brought up in London, she has always lived in the city and has been fascinated by how colour and pattern can change brutal urban environments and peoples perceptions of spaces into places. She is known around the world for her distinct approach making large scaffold structures adorned with neon geometric patterns and shapes often incorporating positive messaging hand painted onto plywood. The eclectic breadth of her work includes the Temple of Agape London 2014, Mirar y ver a huge camera obscura in Mexcio City 2015, Superstucture Sweden 2015, Wide Open Austria 2016, Super Hot structure Romania 2017, Joy and Peace: two installations in London at the moment and the permanent exhibition at the new London Design Museum. Morag Myerscough’s work is characterised by an engaging boldness, creating specific, local responses to each distinct audience that will see and experience the work, using it to create community and build identity. She often works with community groups to develop ideas that reflect the identity of the users, drawing on shared cultural history and heritage of the local area. These collaborations have resulted in some strong permanent installations in hospitals, schools and libraries and have won many awards. She is just completing a 200m installation in a hospital in Sweden based on her mood tweets from when she only spoke on twitter in colour for two years. She set up her own studio in 1993, Studio Myerscough. In 2010 she established SupergroupLondon with Luke Morgan, the duo collaborate on many of the structural art projects. Morag is obsessed with ‘Belonging’ and talks around the world about it and making work that has a positive impact on people’s everyday lives.
