If you have been walking around the streets of Manhattan in the last 10 years then you undoubtedly have come across the haunting zombie imagery of Wrona. A constant in the street art scene, his stickers have been adorning lamp posts and scaring children since the early 2000’s and continue to cast their dead-eyed glare to all who pass by. Unknown to most is the fiendish artwork that accompanies these grim images of the undead. Inspired by horror movies and the macabre, Wrona’s paintings combine old school comic book drawing techniques coupled with painterly wisdom, Including a touch of depravity and humor. A world of dark entities who’s ghastly presence draws you to the world beyond ours and the horrors that keep us up at night.

Please join us for a night of dark art and undead fantasies as we present Wrona’s “Pretty Horrible”. For the event Pandemic is releasing a short run of collaborative stickers combining the images of Wrona’s original “zombie” and Pandemic’s “Dracula Fish” that will be available the night of the show. The gallery should resemble nothing short of a crypt and with Halloween being so close we encourage all zombie enthusiasts to dress accordingly. Hope to see you there, dripping with blood!
