Piñata Artist to the Stars!!
Meaghan Kennedy made her first piñata over eleven years ago for a local cable access show, she immediately fell in love with the craft and left the world of high-end retail to pursue a whole new career as a professional piñata artist.
Her one-of-a kind papier mache creations have been commissioned by clients around the world, and have been displayed in BC restaurants like The Mexican Corner in Whistler, The Galloping Goose in Victoria, who commissioned a large-scale papier mache goose, and a permanent collection of pinatas hangs at Aphrodite’s Organic Café in Vancouver. Over the last few years she has been a featured artist at art shows hosted by Masik Studios, Ion Magazine’s Pop-Up Art Shows and Hot Art Wet City.
Meaghan has been featured as an Artist in Residency for Pop Culture Activist Rusty Blazenhoff’s Electric Dreams Inbox Zine. She was also selected for the Interesting Vancouver speaker series at the Museum of Vancouver and Vancouver's 39th PechaKucha Night and as a part of Hot Art Wet City’s Artist Profile video series.
Pinatas have been commissioned for international musicians by Live Nation , every LUSH Cosmetics store across North America, Trolli USA Candies featured 30 top celebrities as pinatas in a Nation Wide candy launch, as well as for The Vampire Diaries cast and the Discovery Channel’s Shark Week Wrap Party.
