Culture Shock Artist Demo with Michael Fischerkeller

October 12, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Culture Shock (and Torpedo Factory artist) Michael Fischerkeller illustrates spray paint and stenciling techniques during this special demonstration sponsored by Target Gallery, contemporary exhibition space of the Torpedo Factory Art Center, as a part of October’s Second Thursday Art Night.

He will be working on pieces for his ‘Children of War’ series (the piece Grace is featured in the Culture Shock exhibition) on the incredible resiliency we witness in children who live on war zones. In spite of facing death, famine, drought and other horrible conditions that are a consequence of war, the light in children persists in radiating. This series seeks to highlight that light in a series of portraits of children that showcase the grace, determination, and defiance that these children are able to carry.
