New Exhibit: Your Favorite Superhoeroes Reimagined
Mike Alcantara, Spider-Man, Collage, 2015
It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s... an artistic interpretation of our favorite superheroes! My Hero: Contemporary Art & Superhero Action opens May 21 at Escondido’s California Center for the Arts, with mixed media pieces of Batman and other pop culture idols reimagined. Brooklyn-based artist Dulce Pinzon, for example, created photographs depicting the lives of immigrants as society’s “real superheroes,” with images of Catwoman as a nanny and Superman delivering pizzas. In Spider-Man (above), Mike Alcantara used an X-Acto knife to create a collage of upcycled comics. The result? A new comic within a comic. Our Spidey senses are tingling.
Through August 14, 340 North Escondido Boulevard, Escondido
