As part of Supersonic Festival in Birmingham, U.K., a procession of creatures and objects from the mind of Dennis McNett filled the streets. The major project from the artist used the festival musicians (and audience) for an immersive parade experience in the style of work by the artist, who has crafted this style under the moniker “Wolfbat.” The artist was featured in Hi-Fructose Vol. 47 and was last mentioned on our website here. See more photos, all captured by Katja Ogrin, below.
“Combining design roots in traditional wood cuts with the raw high-energy imagery pouring out of the early ’80s skateboard and punk rock scene, Dennis has carved an intricate tribe of mythical entities and tales,” the festival says. “His Wolfbat moniker, a symbol for rebellion against authority, brings to light our animalistic rituals, he brings to life our beasts.”
