“With great power comes great responsibility.” – Uncle Ben

Angelo Accardi

Originally from a small town in the south of Italy, Angelo Accardi combines artistic inspirations within his surreal world. He takes influence from the Old Masters of his home country, and of the new icons of today. Together these ‘misplaced’ characters interact in absurd ways as they traverse Accardi’s bizarre universe, painted from his creative mind.

The 2004 American computer-animated superhero film The Incredibles featured a typical American family with an unusual twist… every member of the family had superhuman powers. From invisibility to speed, each family member had a unique ability, but most importantly, each member had courage. Bob Parr, also known as Mr. Incredible, led his family into a full-time career as superheroes. Together this family fought villains, such as Syndrome, to make the world a better and safer place. Angelo Accardi honors Mr. Incredible by painting him front and center in his painting, aptly titled He’ll Save Us.

Wade Wilson, better known as Deadpool, is a fictional character created by Marvel Comics. Initially, Deadpool was depicted as a supervillain, but over time evolved to become an entirely new type of hero. He uses his dark humor and breaks the fourth wall to bring across a style of comedy that is very unique to his comic. Angelo Accardi uses a similar humorous effect in his paintings.

Deadpools dark humor often shows human existence as ironic and pointless, Accardi plays on this concept. He ironically places Deadpool on an ostrich with a gun pointed at him while the Pink Panther cheers on in the background. Deadpool is looking towards his feet, but instead of being pitiful with the gun pointed towards him and seemingly nowhere to hide, he is seen as an absurd character in an even more absurd world.

Fabiano often uses pictures of big cities that he has taken throughout his life. He often returns to one city in particular, the Big Apple. Using paints, reliefs, and added on collages, Fabiano builds the familiar streets and buildings on his canvas as the perfect backdrop for his superheroes to standout. The scene of New York looks dark and dismal, but the superheroes inspire hope. Captain America stands strong and powerful, inspiring generations of Americans to patriotism and to find their own power and strength inside of themselves.

Gotham City is best known as being the home of Batman. This fictional city resembles New York in almost every way. Even the name comes from the 1635 Dutch city in New Amsterdam, predating the city where New York now stands. Now, Gotham is primarily identified as being the location where every riveting story of Batman and his many foes take place. 

Filled with art deco and art nouveau buildings, similar to Chicago and New York architecture, this city incorporates influences from close and far to create one of the best known fabricated cities to date. Check out Plum’s homage to Batman in his work Gotham.

Superman’s logo, also known as the Superman shield, in almost all versions of the comic. Superman wears a yellow and red ‘S’ on his chest, the logo itself has become so indicative of the character that it alone reads as a representation of the man. Plum pays homage to this inspirational character in his feathered version of the iconic symbol in his artwork Krypton, titled after Superman’s home planet.
