Statement

Lori Kanary is a Nationally acclaimed, Colorado based artist with a Bachelor's of Fine Arts from Metropolitan State College of Denver.

She currently works in Silly Putty. Using her self styled mono-print drawing themes on flattened Silly Putty, Kanary expresses pop culture and its sardonic elements at their finest.

Lori is also a 2x Guinness World Record Holder for the Largest Lite-Brite image.

Kanary, considered the founder of oversized Lite-Brite art, was recently commissioned by ASICS Running shoes to re-create their iconic Gel Lyte 3 shoe utilizing 347,001 actual Lite-Brite pegs.

Her original Guinness World Record Setting Lite-Brite is currently on exhibit at the Guinness Record Museum in Hollywood, California.
