As an artist group focusing on meat as subject, meat as muse, it's always fortunate to engage with other like-minded (meat oriented) individuals.

You are welcome to follow, comment and even join the site.

If you would like to just be added to our mailing list (*I suspect when we have something to announce, like exhibitions etc., we could email you) please email us.

If you are an artist that works with meat as either a subject and/or medium and you are interested in becoming a member of meatartists resource site, please email us and if you would like, send some information and if available, links to your work as a meat artist.

Also, if you have any questions, just... that's right, email!

Pass the word too, if you know someone that'd like us. We like being liked and it may help us achieve all of our mission points.

mission

As a painter of meat for some time now, I have met a number of artists both varied and interesting. The commonality of meat as subject or medium is often compelling, seductive and some may try and argue, repulsive (I have not been repulsed yet though, but surely it must happen somewhere, right? eh).

This site's mission is to attempt the following:
  1. to encourage, establish and foster communication among meat artists and an audience.
  2. to display and exchange images and information of meat artists online and perhaps become a resource.
  3. to initiate and facilitate potential exhibitions and collaborative exchanges.
  4. to make each member an enormous success so they can buy and sell all their enemies as well as make all their friends jealous.
