Speakeasy Art Gallery presents: Dion Hitchings "ICU"

Friday, April 6, 2018

The art that Dion Hitchings creates draws inspiration from a variety places such as dreams, indigenous people, religion, animals, celebrities and even The Jerry Springer show. Dion’s art is colorful, self-revealing, emotional and childlike in spirit. He intentionally works with nontraditional media, using children’s art supplies including crayons, markers, and colored pens. Consumer boxes and other found objects serve as a drawing surface that enables him to break down the preexisting print, images, and textures allowing the elements of the surface to organically become a part the work. For his exhibit “ICU” at Speakeasy Art Gallery opening April 6, 2018, Dion will show a combination of animal and human portraits. The title refers to the perspective of his subjects and how they engage the viewer. The exhibit will also include a new series of drawings based on the seven deadly sins. Each work in the series will feature the animals and colors associated with each sin.
