Alfonso Fabrega and Mark Hoffmann
ARTWORK FROM THIS SHOW WILL SHIP ON 6/3/13.
From May 3 until June 2, Nahcotta exhibits the work of two talented men on the East coast – Mark Hoffmann and Alfonso Fabrega. The opening reception is Friday, May 3, from 5-8 p.m., concurrent with Portsmouth’s downtown art walk.
Hoffmann’s illustrations tend to render quasi-portraits of imagined men and alien hybrids, with titles like “Prison Stripes” and “Most Smartest Man” and “Cap’n Weird Beard.” His work for the show will include framed paper and collage pieces, as well as his painted panels (seen in past Enormous Tiny Art shows at Nahcotta). Going by the moniker “Hoffy,” he is currently working as a freelance editorial and advertising illustrator, painter and animator and teaches at Montserrat College of Art. He holds a B.F.A. in Illustration from Rhode Island School of Design and an M.F.A. in Visual Design from U-Mass/Dartmouth.
With a day job as an interactive and graphic designer, Alfonso Fabrega’s illustrations harken to the simplicity of striking logos and maxims, with letters and symbols hanging directly onto the wall, spelling out aphorisms like “BANG AND BLAST,” “XO” and “FINE.” His work often includes words, expressions of the regular magic of everyday life, chance happenings, characters we encounter along the way. His client list includes Sam Adams, Forum, and Inkubate, among others, and he lives and works in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
Both artists have shown in past Enormous Tiny Art Shows at Nahcotta and this is their first exhibition together.
The opening reception for this these artists is free and open to the public and will take place at Nahcotta on the evening of Friday, May 3, 5-8pm. Nahcotta is located at 110 Congress Street in downtown Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
