Over the weekend, Buff Monster and L’amour Supreme teamed up again to live paint during the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo. These artists have been working a bunch together over the past year, capping off their artistic partnership with a dual show, Number of the Beast, at the Cotton Candy Machine in Brooklyn that opened this month. Read more here about their Iron Maiden-inspired graphic for that show and check out the images below for their work in Chicago this past weekend.

Tonight marks the opening of our group show, Hanna-Barbarians, curated by the Studio Miners and featuring works from talented artists, showing their love of the cartoons that influence their artwork today. Although the name is a reference to Hanna-Barbera, cartoon choices were not limited to the Hanna-Barbera lineup, with artists free to choose any cartoon that has added to their development as an artist. Artists have paid homage to their favorite cartoon characters, while adding their remarkable spin, and the result is a wide range of pieces that will have you smiling as you connect with the artists’ work and the characters they have chosen. Show opens at 6!
Opening night Friday, April 19
6:00PM – 9:00PM
Exhibition runs until May 17
210 Forsyth St.
