Proton Factories is a self-taught printmaker and painter based in Charleston, SC. His artwork mirrors his positive, upbeat personality, featuring reimagined pop culture characters from comic books, movies, cartoons, video games, and more in a simplified, whimsical style. A former graffiti artist, Proton moved his practice from the streets to the studio in 2009 and has since participated in a number of group and solo exhibitions. His work can be seen in the pages and on the cover of “Geek Art: An Anthology” (Chronicle Books) and he was recently commissioned to create trophies for the winners of the 2015 Charleston City Paper Music Awards.
Proton Factories will be appearing Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Booth H10.
