FROM CARTOON NETWORK’S THE PROBLEM SOLVERZ
The Problem Solverz is a animated show currently running on Cartoon Networks Adult Swim and created by artist collective Paper Rad member Ben Jones. Filled with kinetic energy that’s at times based on an abstract animation and story lines, the show also follows simple cartoon cannons. The art style is hyper kinetic, colorful, with an original look and feel that fans of Paper Rad will recognize. This art exhibition will feature works created in the style of the program and it’s characters. View the entire exhibit.
