“Portaits Of Awesomeness” Art Show Opening Mon 10/20 in Hoboken

POA_NoSo_FBbanner

On behalf of  Northern Soul and the Northern Soul Art Project’s curator Narciso Espiritu, Jr., I invite you to the opening reception for “Portraits Of Awesomeness: The Pop-Culture Art of Craig Mahoney” on Monday, October 20th at 7pm. Nearly two dozen new, original drawings and paintings celebrating my favorites from movies, music, TV, and comedy will be on display, with most being shown publicly for the first time.

All artwork will be available for purchase. In addition, there will be drink specials, free snacks, and some of the movies and music that inspired the artwork playing throughout the night. I’m also hearing a rumor that there will be cookies. No promises, though.

If you’re the type of person who enjoys promoting other people’s work (and if you are, THANKS!), here’s the link to the facebook event page and below are some promo pics for your Instagram, twitter, and facebook feeds. Feel free to tag me on instagram (@yerolepalCraiggers) or twitter (@CraigMahoney) and hashtag it #PortraitsOfAwesomeness (Is that a long hashtag? Yes. Do I have a better idea? No. We’ll just have to live with it.).

New Art/Works In Progress: Batman, Superman, Guinness, Jameson, and Jazz

Here’s a few works in progress I’m currently in the middle of, but first I’m posting my first two ever abstract pieces.

They’re visual representations of two of my favorite albums: John Coltrane’s “Giant Steps” and Miles Davis’ “Kind Of Blue”. They were experiments for me. I’d never tried doing an abstract piece before, but I like them. You can currently see them on display at Steam Cafe at 276 Newark Ave in Jersey City.

After that are two pieces I’m currently working on for the “World’s Finest” Batman/Superman tribute show, opening this Friday, Aug 10th at Northern Soul on 1st St in Hoboken. The art reception starts at 6pm and wi be followed by a comedy show that I will also be performing on.

Finally, there are two portraits i’m working on of Arthur Guinness and John Jameson, founders of the libations that bear their names. These are both commission pieces and will be part of the permanent decor at 9th & Coles Tavern in Jersey City.

Enjoy!

New Artwork: “My Card…” Heath Ledger as the Joker

There’s not much to say about this one, other than it’s one of my favorites. So much fun. I wish I could have kept it.
