Cobra McVey uses found objects and recycled synthetic materials in combination with traditional art making techniques to create futuristic environments that reference contemporary culture. She is the lead singer and guitarist for Winelord, a female punk rock trio hatched from the same B-movie aesthetic that influences her visual art. She is also co-founder, costume maker, and a major dancer of The Bar-B-Que Gang Dance Troupe, an enterprise that combines design and performance. McVey received an MFA from the University of Georgia in 2012 and has been an Artist-in-Residence at Virginia Commonwealth University, The Vermont Studio Center and Houston’s Post-Studio Projects. Currently, she is one of three artists in the Artist Studio Program at Houston's Lawndale Art Center. She has lived in Massachusetts and Arizona, but now considers Texas home. Her work has been screened at festivals and exhibited nationally. Winelord’s album, III, is available online and at record stores across the United States.
