Phone Booth Gallery is proud to present "Maui Vacation Decision," a solo exhibition of new work by Pacific Northwest poster artist and illustrator Ian "Hydeon" Ferguson. The online exhibition is viewable online in its entirety at www.phoneboothgallery.com and will run from February 7, 2009 to February 28, 2009.
In "Maui Vacation Decision,", Hydeon gathers his ideas from socio-natural mannerisms in the environment in and around his hometown of Seattle, as well as his day-to-day occupation as a thrift store clothing processor. Hydeon uses a variety of media to create his characters referred to as "The Hermtrogladites" and a city called "Eurylokusville" which he says, "existed in the 1400's and the 1600's." He doesn't own a car, but prefers his bicycle or walking as his primary mode of transportation. This gives him the opportunity to observe and absorb his surroundings.
Hydeon works in a lot of medias including: video, photo, pens, pencils, paint, and music. He also makes music with Oakland based Darren Fisher in a band they have together called "Engines," and in a solo music project called, "henari Nannon," which he started in 2004.
