VANCOUVER, CANADA – November 27, 2013 – Award-winning illustrator Patrick Wong announces the upcoming release of his first limited edition screenprint entitled “Slippage”. The screenprint illustrates a group of four familiar faces mixed with four fictional characters in Patrick Wong’s signature brush and ink style.
The piece is the result of a drawing constraint that combined the image of a real person with one from fiction such as comics, movies, and video games. “Slippage” collects four of the most successful of these drawings to include: KRS One/Zombies, Bjork/Dr. Doom, J Dilla/Spawn, and Jay-Z/Venom.
Regarding his process for creating the piece Wong stated “I was looking for unexpected collisions between the real and the fictional, but it was important for the elements I chose to be instantly recognizable to the viewer. Creating drawings through a method like this helps me to generate ideas and find interesting tensions in potential illustrations.”
“Slippage” will be available through Patrick’s webshop (http://patrickwong.bigcartel.com/) and the Hot Art Wet City Gallery beginning Dec. 4th, 2013 at 12:00 PM Pacific Standard Time. The piece measures 18″ x 24″ and is a 3 color print on acid-free 100# white cover stock. The prints are signed/numbered edition of 45 and is priced at $50. The Hot Art Wet City Gallery is located at 2206 Main Street, Vancouver, Canada. They are open Wed-Sat 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM – Tel. 604-764-2266.
