About Matt Wojtan:
Matt Wojtan’s quest to represent what he sees has led to another beast entirely. As humans, we discuss everything from friends, strangers, family and people we distrust. Wojtan continues this conversation through illustration, paint and colored pencil. The artist has studied the city of Chicago greatly through a mix of life drawing and candid photo reference. The artist’s passion no longer thrives on capturing a physical likeness, but an emotional one.
About Space Cubs:
The event will also feature the release of Space Cubs’ EP Release titled Come Forth, Die Down. Space Cubs is the one-woman moniker of Suzanne Bonifacio, a recent transplant to Chicago, IL. Bonifacio floats effortlessly between distinct vocal melodies and instrumental sound-scapes, while drawing inspiration from names such as Bjork, Boards of Canada, Kate Bush, Junior Boys and Aphex Twin.
