• MICHELLE MURILLO is an Oakland based artist working across traditional and innovative media. Murillo seeks to expand the vocabulary of print and the multiple in an interdisciplinary context. Her work is represented by Bullseye Projects and can be broadly understood as a practice of archiving: the lost, found, re-membered and collected.

    Murillo is a tenured Associate Professor of printmaking and graduate fine arts at California College of the Arts, San Francisco & Oakland. She is a board member of Kala Art Institute and past president of the California Society of Printmakers. In 2014 she co-chaired the SGC International conference in San Francisco. Murillo received a MFA from the University of Alberta, Canada, and BFA from Boston University.
