In a grand effort to Plan Better,
Hyaena is proud to announce
"WINNING: the Charlie Sheen Exhibit." Running from April 1 - April 15,
this is no April Fool's joke. It is a bold exploration of pop culture
and our concept of
celebrity, revolving around America's favorite Troll-Hunting Warlock.
Love him or hate him, Sheen is captivating our media and collective
In the face of scandal, he avoided the emasculation of apology that
plagues so many
in the public eye (Bill Clinton, Tiger Woods, David Duchovny, etc.).
Instead he stood tall
and blatantly took ownership of his vices, shocking the entertainment
his honest defiance. In a culture that loves to place celebrities on a
pedestal and then
viciously tear them down at every opportunity, Sheen threw a curveball
at the hypocrisy,
grabbed his Goddesses, and stepped up to his throne at the Sober Valley
leaving the naysayers to their own devices.
With his quick wit Sheen creates some of the most incredible sound bites
on an hourly
basis to feed to the masses. His innovative use of available technology
media keeps his Torpedoes of Truth on the tips of everyone's tongue.
Whether you think
Sheen is insane or a genius, this is the first time we have truly been
allowed to have such
direct real time access to a celebrity's thoughts. Will he go down in a
drug-fueled orgy of
madnessÖor is he simply making a mockery of us all?
This art exhibit at Hyaena Gallery, "WINNING," gathers a select group of
artists from our
roster: Jim Wirt (author of "Coloring Book Land"), Jeff Rebner (from
Ken Stranahan (award winning VFX artist), Chris Mann, Big Tasty, Lou
Donnie Green, Jessica Ward, Nicolas Caesar, and more! They are taking no
and have gone balls out to create a killer show that guarantees some
surprises. In true Hyaena fashion we are using this opportunity to poke
a little fun
at the media and ourselves, and to pay tribute to a man who is not
afraid to lay down his
own path outside the mainstream and walk it proudly.
Oh...and the gallery is mere blocks away from Warner Brothers Studios
where Two and a Half Men was filmed.
