Omar Rayyan’s mythological paintings call upon a centuries-old sensibility while showcasing the artist’s penchant for the monstrous. His new show at Haven Gallery, titled “Fins, Feathers, & Fangs,” collects new works from Rayyan, who was last featured on our site here. The show runs through Jan. 12.
“Rayyan’s works is known for its consummate painting techniques harking back to the old masters juxtaposed with contemporary wit and whim,” the gallery says. “Mythological characters, woodland creatures, fashionable socialites, curious children and Rayyan’s famous beasts take the stage in playful compositions that evoke a sense of wonder and humor.”
