Space 4 Art Classroom
Stay Strange presents SEAL OF DISAPPROVAL: DEVIANCY & DELINQUENCY. This special art event will explore the possibilities that superheros are not all that perfect and display unusual idiosyncrasies in their normally flawless character.
The original idea came from artist M.J. Stevens, who created an illustrated series called 'Screwed Up Superheroes'. His caped crusaders suffered from some sort of physical or psychological abnormality. One of those creations was titled Massively Muscled Man. He's very, very strong, but unable to move due to his size. Another un-superhero has the power of upside-down flight. However beneficial that may be. M.J. will be displaying some of these mighty miscreants (plus a ton of new ones) at the show.
Larry Caveney will be presenting his violent and disturbing Francis Bacon inspired superhero paintings. Faces smeared, appearances barely visible. But due to the familiar costume or colors that we're used to, the characters are instantly recognizable. A total mind trip!
Shock performance artist XR will be performing as well as displaying some of his wildly imagined superhero street art.
Neu-grotesque artist Vanessa Martinez will be horrifying the audience with grim and decrepit anti-superheros.
Beat-maker TENSHUN will also have rare art on the walls of the Space 4 Art.
This will ultimately be an interesting show for all ages and shall bring a refreshing jolt of strangeness to this year's comic convention.
