Embracing Folk Art, Southwestern art, freight train graffiti and hobo symbology, Margaret Kilgallen brought an outsider, rural perspective to the very urban world of Street Art. Married to the artist Barry McGee, the two were constant collaborators who influenced each other's work immensely. Tragically passing away from cancer in 2001, her work has since been celebrated at the Whitney Biennial, The Hammer Museum, and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles.
