Ken Steacy: Modern Myths & Icons art show in Victoria, BC until March 28

From the The martlett: The University of Victoria’s Independant Newspaper:

What: Modern Myths and Icons: The Comic Art of Ken Steacy

Where: Winchester Galleries, 2260 Oak Bay Road, Victoria BC

When: now until March 28

In his 35-year career as a comic book illustrator/author, Ken Steacy never thought he would have his work displayed in a fancy art gallery. But from March 8 to 28, Victoria’s Winchester Galleries will do just that, hosting “Modern Myths and Icons: The Comic Art of Ken Steacy.”

The exhibit is a retrospective look at Steacy’s career and the role of the artist in the comic book industry. Over the years, Steacy has illustrated prolific pop culture icons like Spiderman, Harry Potter, Indiana Jones, Astro Boy, X-Men and Batman in his signature style — vibrant colours, dramatic lines and incredibly expressive, almost cartoon-like faces. His work always conveys the sense of action and fun that comics were made for.
