Deaf Kids and Rattle helped with the drumming, Agathe Max on violin. aside from building the giant wolf puppet and directional spirit masks, we had a Wolfbat mask making workshop for two days where several locals made their own elaborate masks. Thank you Birmingham and SuperSonic.
HalloWolfbat 2017 at Heron Arts in San Francisco
This years HalloWolfbat was part happening part art show. The entire space at Heron Arts was filled with a giant installation and art pieces. Outside the Wolfbat tribe battled the low frequency demons while High on Fire, SubRosa, Wizard Rifle and Flat Black set the heartbeat of the night. Thank you Heron.
Wolfbat tricked out the entire 20,000 sq. ft. space like a psychedelic arena where demigods, robots and giant wolves clashed to the sound of Big Business and Flipper.
Conjuring the Red River 2015
This was from a four week artist residency at the Shreveport Regional Art Center. The installation is a Wolfbat river boat with animated parts and psychedelic imagery covering the boat and walls. The inside was filled with boxes containing Wolfbat photos from past journeys along with the stories.
This was part of a traveling exhibition of the boards, carved blocks and prints of all 26 graphics done for Antihero skatebaords. The exhibition was shown at the Lodge Gallery in NYC, Orchard Skate shop gallery in Boston, Eleanor Harwood Gallery in SF and Known Gallery project room.
A SIX STAIR PRODUCTION Video by Coan Buddy Nichols
For the past 4 months (and 8 episodes) Dennis McNett has been hard at work creating 2 life size Viking ships, 10 die cut wood block pieces, a huge wave wall and 3 memorial ships for his first big solo show in Chelsea. Produced by Sixstair
This clip shows the execution, artwork, and performance from a solo show at the Joshua Liner Gallery. The exhibition showed a memorial installation to the passing of Andy Kessler, Richard Mock, and Tom Little, an installation of Saint Death, several wood carvings and a celebratory procession of 24ft Viking ships through the streets.
Custom Culture teamed with artist Dennis McNett to bring the Wolfbat Railway to Louisiana. Students from McMain Secondary School in New Orleans were given the unique opportunity to collaborate with over 40 artists from across the country to customize a 100 foot model train engine and boxcars.
The Wolfbat army has conjured the Frost Giant Ymir from his blood ice castle on the frozen lake. From Ymir's slain body the gods created a world unwelcoming to the Wolfbat, giants, and man. The Wolfbat army will slay Ymir's resurrected spirit in order to reforge a world welcoming to the spirit of the Wolfbat. (the evening before our procession down State St. and onto the ice the governor announced his bill to take away union labor rights) This project was performed with WU-Madison art students on the frozen lake Mendota near campus.
The Wolfbat Army migrated from St. Louis into Kansas City for a well deserved victory celebration. 5 captured Aliens were slain in the streets followed by a Wolfbat War Vessel procession through the streets ending burning a war eagle, lighting off fireworks and a set by Sedlec Ossuary.
The Wolfbat Army after slaying Ymir and Sacrificing dreams of fire to Loki has moved in Washington state to call to and battle the War Eagle of Bellingham which will tell the fortune of the Wolfbat army's future battles. This project was performed with WWU students.
In celebration of the Fallen Gods slain in the conflict of academia vs. free minds the Wolfbat army processed through the rainy streets of St. Louis to the sacrifice grounds of the Atomic Cowboy. Here the severed heads of the gods were burned.
nhe Chupakabra have joined with the Wolfbat in order to track the Jackalope and reclaim their territories in west Texas. The Jackalpoe have come down from Wyoming and have been over breeding the lands and pushing the Chupakabra out. Once the head Jackalope heard the Chupakabra had put a hit out for his life he fled. Unknowingly the travel agent booking his flight to Stonehenge was actually working for the Wolfbat and booked the flight to the Stonehenge replica in Odessa, TX where the clan are awaiting his arrival. Check the video. Thanks Mario and thank you UTPB students. You guys rule.
This was a performance at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Jacksonville Florida. The performance was a wedding marrying the sky to the moon... revolving around Nordic characters. This was a collaboration between John Hancock, John Hitchcock, UNF students, Jenny Hager, Emily Author Douglas, and myself. The performance was followed by a procession. The whole crew was amazing and the students at UNF killed it.
This was a Viking ship built by Wolfbat Studios and covered with imagery from tons of artists. We invaded a hoity toity condo complex, blew off fireworks, raised hell, made a buncha noise and destroyed the ship.
