We are very happy to introduce local painter, illustrator, and designer Ronnie Dukes as the next artist in our ongoing exhibition series Local Art @ EPL. From now through the end of April, his visionary collection Vitruvian Hero: Act I will be on display on the 2nd floor of EPL’s Main Branch. Inspired by Da Vinci’s famous Vitruvian Man, this first of a planned three-part series explores the possibilities of “super” human evolution using elements of sci-fi and fantasy in the striking style of comic-book illustrations. You can view more of Mr. Dukes’ work by visiting his website, and make sure to check back with Off the Shelf later in April for a featured interview with the artist himself. Stay tuned.
