The Afroterrestrials: Impromptu Closing Reception

September-27-2018 – September-27-2018

I've had the honor and pleasure to present my latest body of work "The Afroterrestrials" at the amazing Grandchamps, over the past month. As the saying goes, all good things must come to end and; this is the FINAL week that we'll have this series on display.

This Thursday, September 27th, come through for a small gathering and chat with me. This is mostly for people who missed the opening reception but all are welcome. I'll have prints on hand to sell, as well as the work displayed for sell as well.

See you then!

The Afroterrestrials Exhibition

August-22-2018 – September-30-2018

Grandchamps Artist Spotlight gives artists a space to display their creations as well as a platform to tell their stories. We seek artists of the community in order to support and showcase local talent.

Hab Oh is an illustrator and teaching artist from Brooklyn, NY. His passion for visual art was nurtured at a young age, leading this hobby to become a professional career and the founding of the "Habtoons" brand in 2009. Hab's work centers around themes of race, identity, surrealism, and horror crafting a unique visual experience that challenges the perspective of what "black art" can be. The Afroterrestrials (2017-Present) is a collection of illustrations highlighting extraterrestrial Black women in their every-day lives, each piece a vignette into deeper narratives subverting the stereotypical and often common imagery seen in current day cartoons and comic books.

Join us for the opening of the exhibit which will include an exclusive Q+A with the artist.
