About the Event
Aaron Beatty is an illustrator, painter, comic book and digital artist from Philadelphia PA; a city that plays a major role in his life and work. Aaron has been making art from an early age starting with copying panels from his favorite comic books. This interest led him to study at The High School of Creative and Preforming Arts, Pratt Institute and Parsons School of Design. Over the years he has worked in the comic book industry as an inker, a freelance illustrator, art director and teacher just to name a few.
Aaron's creative influences are drawn from a diverse kaleidoscope of music, social events and cultural revolutionary artists of the 1970's. Music from Afro-Punk, Miles Davis, Nina Simone and Fela Kuti were his lyrical Sirens. Artists such as Jean Michel Basquiat, Jerry Pinkney and fellow art friends Reggie Byers, Christopher Taylor and Eric Battle fuels his collective fellowship with the Black Arts movement.
From his mastery of combining all these influential elements, Aaron has created imaginary images that honor the historical past, speaks to the present and focuses on the future. This exhibition compels the viewer to analyze the symbolic regions of the heart and soul and expand our interpretations of visual storytelling.
"Ink & Digital: Drawings and Collages" Art Exhibit Opening Reception featuring works from Aaron Beatty will be held on Second Friday, February 10th, 2023 from 5PM-8PM at Ultra Silk Gallery (3808 Lancaster Avenue Philadelphia PA 19104). Exhibit will be open for viewing during business hours until Wednesday, March 8th 2022.
