The work of Johannah O Donnell finds inspiration in the passions of those who go outside the mainstream. From heavy metal to dungeons and dragons, fantasy and roleplaying; O Donnell illustrates this vivid imaginary world as well as the alternative identities that participants create. The real and the fantastical jostle side by side in these unconventional portraits; and while both people and animals are painted realistically, they combine into mythical beasts. O Donnell paints these realistic elements are in a somber palette of black and white, to contrast against motifs from popular culture; graffiti tags and stylized imagery, all painted in florescent neon. The result is vibrant images with an amazing pop punch, which seem equally suited to the gallery as to the album cover. Enjoy.
