Featured Artist: Dennis McNett
Dennis McNett creates graphic wood carvings which he then hand paints and colors. He has merged the two mediums (sculpture and painting) into one gorgeous outcome – full of texture, dimension and movement. His works range from fine art block prints to contrasty skate decks, with a strong leaning towards wildlife imagery – animals which are loaded with character and energy. With a hint of folk art and rock poster flavor, they are dynamic eye candy to behold!
Red Truck Gallery recently acquired some of his musician portraits (below), so if you find your way to New Orleans, be sure to stop in and partake. They also have an excellent selection of quirky, outsider, talented artists on their walls.
His graphic aesthetic and love for narrative work has been translated in many ways. His work ranges from larger than life Viking ship performances and parades in Philly, resurrecting Nordic giants on West Broadway in Manhattan, dragon slayings in Oklahoma, masks, installations and sculptures to unique hand-carved wood.
