Meet the Artists
- Porkchop is a multi-disciplinary artist from New Jersey. He has an MFA in Scupture from VCU and a BA from University of the Arts in Philadelphia. Porkchop has established a great presence through his magnificently scaled murals, including the extensively documented scenes he composed along the Asbury Park Boardwalk. In conversation with the sea narrative is a prevalent theme in his work. Porkchop's mixed media paintings and sculptures combine vintage images with darker scenarios and twisted iconography. He creates these situations by combining paint, illustration and text.
- Bradley Hoffer is a multidisciplinary artist born and currently living in New Jersey. His work offers strong and clean images that are based on line and color. The final paintings are actualized and considered to be larger completed drawings. Bradley's line creates the image, which is unusual, as it is usually the image which informs the line. This process allows for diverse characteristics of line, form and image. Some objects flow and curlicue, while others have a harder, straightedge quality. Both bold and muted colors are used to maximize their impact. With carefully selected fabrics, both vintage and contemporary fabrics are either used as a complete background for the image or cleverly employed in carefully chosen portions of each piece.
