Join us for the Visual Arts Series featuring Danny Malboeuf’s exhibit entitled “The Atrocities Show”. The exhibit will be on display from March 7 – March 28. Danny Malboeuf is a self-trained artist/illustrator. Working mainly in acrylics, he paints in an allegorical figurative style that combines surrealist, symbolic and pre-Raphaelite sensibilities, often in conjunction with subtle pop-culture references. Malboeuf counts music and literature as his greatest sources of inspiration; specific artistic influences include the painters Arnold Boecklin, John Martin, Ferdinand Khnopff, and Leon Frédéric. While many of his paintings deal with mythological and religious themes, the frequent incorporation of sci-fi and pop-culture imagery from the artist’s youth establishes tentative connections with movements such as pop surrealism. He has a strong bias towards painting female subjects, “perhaps because the essence of female is more poetic, and the male more prosaic.”
