Zine Review: Meta

a zine by Marissa Falco

I thought I had never heard of artist Margaret Kilgallen until I read the introduction to this zine and made the connection – she was a railroad graffiti artist whose tag was Matokie Slaughter (and Meta). I vaguely remember glimpsing a photograph of some of her graffiti somewhere and her standing on a platform next to a dude named Right Bank Fred. Of course, that could have been a hazy dream.

Meta is a concise, enjoyable, ¼  size zine that serves as an introduction to Margaret Kilgallen’s art. Marissa has peppered splendid graphics throughout. Now I am curious to see the Art 21 television program mentioned in Marissa’s introduction!
