We are two SVA alumni, Sophocles (BFA Cartooning; 2011) and Le Vey (BFA Fine Arts; 2014). We curate pop up art exhibitions to give artists, art students, and the SVA community the opportunity to network, exhibit and sell their work in great venues throughout NYC. Our mission is to build a community of unrepresented local and international artists of all levels. We want to invite them to exhibit their work at our events.
Sophocles is a Queens-based published cartoonist, illustrator, and curator whose main mediums are Japanese fude pens and markers. Sophocles creates Metro Manga (Subway Comics), a hybrid of comic and fine art, in the Subway systems around the world. He captures candid portraits of real people, they are the characters in his manga. Each panel in his comics tells its own Subway Story. He is currently working on a book cataloging 7 years of his Subway art from NYC and Japan.
