Brendan Monroe's illustrations depict nebulous, vibrating scenes of a dream-world inspired by scientific processes. His works bring to life the formless figures of a microscopic plane, inviting the viewer into vivid realms of flesh, blood and plasma that are at once strange and deeply our own. Monroe lives in Oakland with his wife Evah and his cat Jalapeño, and he is also a sculptor. He lists some of his interests as "slime, fungus, blobs, crawling sludge, the entire Universe, cats, dogs, rain, the beach, chemistry, biology, botany, food, watching paint dry, frequencies in waves of light."
