Surrealist Self-Portrait Workshop

Programmed by Denise Kan

Let go of rational control of your self-image and work with artist Johnny Galvan to create an artwork guided by surrealist methods in this workshop in conjunction with the exhibition Strange. Have your photo taken, then use surrealist drawing techniques to make a self-portrait, and see how these two images can be juxtaposed and layered using the Risograph printer.

Johnny Galvan is an artist from the Coachella Valley currently working in the San Francisco Bay Area. His current project Within Opposition highlights the overlooked landscapes that are built around us, yet were never intended. His images point to the contrast and harmony of our ideals and the reality of the Bay Area landscape. Galvan received his BFA at California College of the Arts in Oakland.
