BALTIMORE--Baltimore-based artists working in the visual entertainment fields of video games, comic books, and illustration will exhibit their personal work in VS. June 5-July 31 at The Windup Space, 12 w. North Ave. An opening reception for VS. takes place Friday, June 5 from 7-9 p.m. at the bar, music, and arts venue located in the heart of the Station North Arts and Entertainment District.
Each of the 14 artists, many of whom are MICA illustration faculty, alumni (illustration, general fine arts, and post-baccalaureate certificate), and students, have interpreted the theme of conflict from a fine art perspective. It may be literal -- Hellboy vs. Koschei the Deathless -- or conceptual -- Wrath vs. Serenity.
Artists include video game environment artist and landscape painter Colin Campbell '04, graphic novel artist and MICA faculty Brian Ralph (Cave-In, Climbing Out,) video game concept artist and Spectrum Gold winner Jeremy Enecio '08, video game concept artist, freelance illustrator, and MICA faculty Sean Murray, and children's book illustrator, fairy tale-inspired fine artist and MICA faculty Jaime Zollars.
