Sohaila Adela & Joe Vollan This Friday At Moksha & Upper Playground!

Sohaila Adela, whose work is on the right, will have a show opening this Friday, May 15th, at Moksha in the University District (4542 University Way NE). Her new body of work features well-drawn female characters, as before, but they are now ornamented with dramatic ornaments and symbols. From the looks of it, this particular show with have a leaning towards dark themes.

To the left, Joe Vollan‘s standout style of illustration has torn up the Seattle scene as of late. Using niche-market characters, such as robots, octopuses, flies, and teddy bears, Vollan crafts worlds that are domestic and nostalgic, yet whimsical at the same time. This Friday, right on the same street at Moksha, Vollan will have an opening at Upper Playground (4730 University Way NE).
