NEW YORK, NY—Phoebe Legere is a transmedia artist who works in the space between Art, Music, Ecology and Engineering.

Phoebe Legere creates renewable Energy Art with a message:
Love Is Your Power.

Phoebe Legere will exhibit her new Alternative Fuel 15-person Ride-Able Sculpture at the May 15 – 17 Maker Faire, San Mateo Event Center.

The Shamancycle is a Monster Eagle with flaming eyes, all created from up-cycled metal from car crashes. “I have repurposed the agony and death of twisted metal I found in junk yards and I have transformed it into giant sculpture that is a symbol of vision and freedom.”  The art vehicle has been valued at more than one million dollars.


In the recent HBO documentary on Hilary Knight and Phoebe Legere, writer-producer pop culture icon Lena Dunham said, “Phoebe Legere is a genius. We adore Phoebe Legere.”

Phoebe Legere is a legendary East Village activist who founded an Urban Museum for Visionary Art with a teaching outreach program called the NY Underground Museum .  Legere is the creator of a free Festival Art & Music Camp for high poverty, underserved children.

Phoebe Legere is forging a link between curators, artists and communities. “My parents are both painters. They trained me. I did my first oil painting at age 5. My grandparents were musicians. I wrote my first song at age 6. My early exposure to the arts saved my life. Today my community arts activism is an integral part of my art practice. My place of production is an exhibition/performance space called the NY Underground Museum. My motto is, “Celebrating Visionary Art and Music, Nurturing the Artists of Tomorrow.”

Phoebe Legere writes songs and paints daily.  Legere does paintings of giant nude women, men and animals that are embedded with digital music. Legere’s erotic-punk paintings celebrate the human body, the sacredness of relationships and the non-objective reality of Time as Being.

Phoebe Legere is also a trained musician. She is a songwriter, conductor and writer of symphonies who has set her autobiography of her life as a teenage runaway to music.

The New York Times raved:“Legere plays the piano with enormous authority in a style that encompasses Chopin, blues, ragtime, bebop and beyond, and she brings to her vocal delivery a four octave range, and an extraordinary palette of tonal color and meticulous phrasing.”

Provincetown Magazine wrote: “Often copied, never equaled, Phoebe Legere is a transmedia virtuoso force who zaps the listener into a new reality. Legere personifies the divine feminine; her multi-octave voice has been compared to Edith Piaf, Aretha Franklin and Maria Callas. Legere is nuclear, spinning, multidimensional create force not to be missed.” Interview Magazine called her “a genius.”
