"Stencil, Pop, Vinyl"

Trabant Coffee & Chai and the Seattle Arts Coalition present:

"Stencil, Pop, Vinyl" - art on records by Dave Ryan (Manticore Stencil Art)

Opening reception:
Friday, 18 April from 6-9pm
(part of the University District Art Walk)

Encore receptions:
Friday, 16 May from 6-9pm
Friday, 20 June from 6-9pm

This exhibit will run for three full months! Keep coming back to see new additions to the show!

Manticore Art will also be part of the U District Streetfair! Saturday & Sunday, 17-18 June.

Dave Ryan was born and bred in the wet dank forests of Washington State. He began stenciling in the spring of 2006 and started to refer to himself as the Manticore.

In the summer of 2008 Dave broke his neck while backpacking across the US. He had lost most of his fine motor functions and used stenciling as both a means to regain the use of his hands and as his sole income.

The Manticore has since made a full recovery, and his unique blend of silly pop art can be found in coffee shops, watering holes, and at Seattle's Fremont Sunday Market. The Manticore is available for custom portraits.

HappyTime Apocalypse is an art collective that celebrates the balance of dark and light, good and evil, happy and horrified.
