Artist Interview: Rick Silva

Artist Interview: Medusawolf

By day Alan E. Brown is a mild mannered bookstore employee in Bear, Delaware.   At night he transforms himself into Medusawolf and paints quaint little portraits of demons, beasts, and robots – each radiating their own agonizing, pulsating energies.   These intensely hued dimensions merge bits of insanity, beauty, and humor and crunch it all down into a fun but very warped output.   I got a chance to catch up with Medusawolf to find out what he is up to…
