Superhero: IV Annual Portrait Invitational @ Modern Eden Gallery


Modern Eden Gallery proudly presents their IV Annual Portrait Invitational, ‘Superhero’, alongside the gallery’s five-year anniversary! With cause for celebration, artists from across the globe come together and ‘lift the mask’ with a marvel-ous new collection of work.

But beware the alter-ego masterminds and savage rulers with all their evils. Painted villains and caped vixens bound in impenetrable armor stand strong while our honorable defenders shield humanity from the threats of these wicked counterparts. From neophyte pink blade blasters to unstoppable masters of the universe, everyone loves a superhero. With phenomenal strength, energy sourcing, mental domination, and induced-evolution mutations… they even make spandex bodysuits look good.
