Paranormal Hallucinations

Ryan C. Doyle

The Paranormal Hallucinations show at Pandemic Gallery, curated by Safwat Riad, opened over the weekend. As expected, there is a strong selection of extremely talented and generally underrated artists and illustrators. Below are a few of my favorites from the show, which included Ryan C. Doyle, Egyptian Jason, Charlie Marks, Peyote LLEW, Gen2, Mikey Big Breakfast, Swampy, Deuce Seven and others. For a complete set of images from the show, check Pandemic Gallery’s flickr.

Mad-talented ink, brush and pen artists tonight at Pandemic Gallery

Deuce Seven

If you can make it on such short notice (sorry, my bad), Pandemic Gallery in Williamsburg has what promises to be an impressive group show opening tonight, Saturday the 17th. Paranormal Hallucinations features a group of very talented artists known for their work with ink, pen and bush and is curated by Safwat Riad. Highlights should include the late Charlie Marks, Llewellyn Mejia (aka Peyote Party), Deuce 7 and Swampy. Since tonight is probably too much short notice, keep in mind that Paranormal Hallucinations will be open through January 7th.

Labrona and Troy Lovegates aka Other in Chile

Freshman year is almost over and soon I’ll be leaving Philadelphia for NYC and London (just for the summer though). And yet, I still have finals to study for, so I didn’t get time to write about these things…

Veng in NYC

Well, I’m just gonna brag for a second. Haverford College just got way cooler. M1 from Dead Prez is doing a residency here. Gonna go see him perform tonight in our tiny music venue. And yes, I am aware of the apparent hypocrisy of being a white male at a private educational institution and getting excited to see M1 perform. Anyway. Back to the art.

New prints from Shepard and Deuce Seven

Two print releases which I’m very excited to write about today.

First up is Shepard Fairey. Evolve Devolve is an open edition poster signed by Shepard and for sale at just $35 plus shipping. After a surprising few prints that were not up to Shepard’s usually high standards (frankly, a few of them were just rubbish), the master of poster art is back with this beautiful offset piece about the environment. And making it an open edition poster is a great touch. Buy it at the OBEY Store.

And then there is Deuce Seven. One of those artists that New Yorkers rave about but most people have probably never heard of. Falling Into The Black Hole Sun is a 25 color print, edition of 72, and only $100 each. It is classic Deuce imagery and each print even includes some hand working by Deuce Seven. You can pick this print up at Burlesque Design.
