Philip Lumbang, who just completed his solo show at mph, entitled The New Adventures of Awesome Bear, will also be participating in our upcoming group show, Hanna-Barbarians. Phil has taken his Awesome Bear character and merged him with Yogi Bear in this piece “Park Life”. Click here for a look inside Philip’s studio.
The opening of Hanna-Barbarians is almost here! This week is going to be packed with previews of some of the amazing work in this group show, opening this Friday, April 19 from 6-9pm. Below you’ll find a sneak peek of Brian Butler’s two pieces for this cartoon-inspired exhibition. Butler, a mini golf course expert and ridiculously talented artist, is the creative mind behind the half human, half ice cream hybrids, Ice Cream People, which were featured in a solo show at Kidrobot Miami in 2010. We are super happy to have his work in the show and think you’ll be too!
Eyeformation, a MA-based artist who was recently the cover artist for Boston’s Weekly Dig and was also featured in the Boston Phoenix, is participating in our upcoming Hanna-Barbarians group show opening a week from today (April 19)! With his bold lines and bright colors, we’re super stoked to see his take on some of his favorite and most influential cartoon characters. Check out the Studio Miners’ studio visit with Eyeformation for a look into his world.
Podgy Panda, a New Zealand artist now based in the UK, has created two pieces for the Hanna-Barbarians show, opening April 19. His works are entitled “Now” and “Nostalgia” and if you look at the images below, you should be able to figure out which one is which. Podgy Panda was a participating exhibitor in the recent ToyCon UK, where he had some top quality prints and toys available, including variations of the Podgonaut figure, his collaboration with Cris Rose. In addition to being a super talented artist, he was an easy fit for this show because you can often see influences of popular culture in his work, with his daily doodles series containing imagery from movies and tv shows. To see the full pieces, you’ll have to come out to the opening of this show next Friday night from 6 – 9pm! Hope to see you there!
