Comic book inspired art byRyan HeshkaAt
Secret HeadquartersFriday February 1st, 2008
New comic book inspired paintings by modern master Ryan Heshka feel familiar in an old timey and eerie way. The illustrations of monsters, pin-up girls, robots and dated comic books feel almost discarded or better yet, found among the dusty items of an estate sale. It is clear that Heshka has been inspired by pulp magazines, science images and old advertisements but he manages to go beyond these influences to deliver us to a striking new world of delicately distorted and painted dreams.
Heshka has painted for BLAB!, Vanity Fair, Playboy, Wall Street Journal, Barrons, Popular Science, Dreamworks SKG, Fast Company, PC World, Smart Money, Esquire, Harper Collins, and Newsweek.
The artist will attend the opening from 8pm to 10pm.Paintings will be available for sale / viewing online starting Thursday the 31st of January. We will provide the web site in an email Thursday morning.
Secret Headquarters will feature Heshka’s one-of-a kind original works of art through March 5th, 2008.
