Art + Hustle presents Mike McManus solo show DRAMATIS PERSONÆ at their Cotton Hustle location Friday August 29th 7:30-11pm.
Witness his crazy mind spilled out on canvas & paper and limited edition t-shirts. With live music, drinks and cupcakes!
Faces. Everyday. Exposed and distorted, sifted and oozed through a cascade of McManus’ brainwaves. Characteristics brought to a boil; expressions exploded in a spectrum of emotion. A twist of lips syphons a lover from adolescence deep into the designs of an iris. Grinding teeth release figments from last weeks lucid dream. Our passions and struggles, our pasts and our beliefs peeked in sketchy forms, fashioned upon flaccid flesh. With anxious diligence our stories are sorted across our portraits in a fantastic display of pen & brushwork, splashes and scrapes, casting society’s cast of characters in the manic vision of an artist who knows no end.
