AACCCR Features Artist Malik Penn

Artist Malik Penn

 Artist Malik Penn

William Malik Penn hails from Brooklyn, NY.  While claiming to never had any formal artistic training, he renders strikingly life-like portraits of larger than life celebrities on his canvas.  His drawings are done using a charcoal method that he says takes its inspiration from Michelangelo, which is evident in the dramatic contrasts between light and dark and the acute detail of all the subjects in his portraits.  According to Penn, he chooses his subjects according to his mood and likes to challenge himself using different styles when the spirit moves him.

The AACCCR is featuring the works of this talented young artist beginning with an opening reception on February 6, 2015 during Albany’s First Friday from 6-8:30 pm. The exhibition will continue through March 31, 2015.

Center Hours:

Mondays: Noon-3:00 pm.

Or contact ljackson11@nycap.rr.com for an appointment.
