DAC JUNE 2019 ARTIST SPOTLIGHT - Alexanna Wonder & Chris Bodily

Alex Wonder makes surrealist inspired artwork with environmental and occult themes.  Her work spans from dance performances to photography, drawing, and painting. From 2016 - 2017, she combined painting with alternative photographic processes to create two Tarot Decks; the Conjure Oracle Deck and the Cyanotype Deck. In addition to running an art booth to promote my decks, she teaches various art technique workshops at the Downtown Artist Collective and partners with organizations to fundraise for various causes.

Chris Bodily is a fine artist and illustrator creating artwork under the name Hatrobot for almost twenty years. His body of work is primarily ink illustration influenced by cartoons, comic books, lowbrow, tattoos, and graffiti. Stylistically his work today is still characterized by the cartoons he watched as a kid, but thematically he strives for concept work with more weight.
