Giant Robot is proud to present Other Places, an art show featuring new works by Ulises Alfonso Farinas.

Farinas is Brooklyn-based illustrator and cartoonist who meticulously blends genres, styles, and universes. Breaking down the walls between imagination and reality, he depicts a super-saturated, hyper-detailed world where heroes and monsters are as real as cars and skyscrapers, and peace is not an option. He is currently drawing Transformers: Heart of Darkness for IDW and continues to write and illustrate the online snow fantasy epic, MOTRO.

For Other Places, Farinas is preparing 40 pen-and-ink pieces, mostly medium sized with one or two larger works. This will be his West Coast debut.

Giant Robot was born as a Los Angeles-based magazine about Asian, Asian-American, and new hybrid culture in 1994, but has evolved into a full-service pop culture provider with shops and galleries in Los Angeles and San Francisco, as well as an online equivalent.

An opening reception for Farinas will take place from 6:30 – 10:00 on Saturday, January 15. For more information about the artist, GR2, or Giant Robot magazine, please contact:
