Capturing the joy of reuniting old friends in mediums like grizzly yet defined woodwork and graphic, psychedelic illustration, HAHAxParadigm Class Reunion II will showcase the studio work of artists creating for the community.
Participating artists not only take part in community projects and create dialogue about art, but also leave their physical touch on Philadelphia. We're so happy that we get to bring creators across the world to the local scene in Philadelphia, and invite you to join our celebration of artists Sophie Roach, Isabelle Alford-Lago, and Dennis McNett on May 27 at 5:30pm in the upcoming exhibit HAHAxParadigm Class Reunion II.
For Virginia Beach native McNett, also known to many as Wolfbat, that touch is graphic and carved from wood, featuring snarling wolves and hissing snakes—violent images created in dainty, looping lines. Illustrator Roach’s mark is equally graphic, but splashed with psychedelic colors and a barely-restrained joy. The paintings of Alford-Lago, focused on humorous but primitive—and overall very human—gorillas, unabashed in their nude confidence.
But wait, there's more! We couldn't have a proper reunion without the whole gang. There will also be a wall of small works by: NDA, Nate Harris, Jason Andrew Turner, Kelly Kozma, Sean Talamini, Ryan Psota, Sean 9 Lugo, Miriam Singer, Kelly Franklin, Paige Smith, My Dog Sighs, Clint Tillman Reid, X-O (Hyland Mather), Mando Marie, Calo, Sarah Bereza and Vladimir Antaki.
Each artist brought their talents from all over the world to leave a piece of themselves behind in Philadelphia—something the city can remember and celebrate them by.
