Prints by RC Hagans for sale in the Pelham Art Center Collectibles & Artisan Boutique exhibition. Which is your favorite?
.
.
RC Hagans is an Alabama artist who communicates in a visual stream of altered-consciousness. The 33 year-old vandal’s work invites the viewer to visit a parallel dimension where the architect seems to use decay as much as evolution to shape his universe. To create a final product that is equal parts fine/folk/street art, the former cage-fighter draws on imagery from religion, pop culture, punk rock, and conspiracy theories.
