Eric Firestone Gallery presents Positivilly Marvillainous

Monday, July 7, 2014


Saturday the Eric Firestone Gallery presented the opening of Positivilly Marvillainous. This contemporary exhibit references George Herriman’s Krazy Kat comic strip that ran in American newspapers from 1913 until 1944.


The artists who contributed to Positivilly Marvillainous embrace tensions that arise from Herriman’s qualities in character portrayal. It features artists who “champion the character.”


The artwork in this exhibit strays from the traditional character development. It provides a detailed comprehension of behaviors and expressions of people. Its been said that Positivilly Marvillainous will deliver the next evolution of human iconography.


The roster continues to grow but the confirmed artists were Bäst, Ellen Berkenblit, Mike Bidlo, Rosson Crow, Ted Gahl, George Herriman, Chris Johanson, Ray Johnson, Sean Landers, Austin Lee, Dan McCarthy, Joyce Pensato, Dave Sayre, Kenny Scharf, David Shrigley and Devin Troy Strother.
