Comic Book Art Meets Fine Art In NYC

(S)uperhero Joins The 10(S)ubjects @ Castle Fitzjohns Gallery


10Subjects Logo

One of the largest (S)uperhero themed paintings in the city isn’t at New York Comic Con. This Massive (8’x3′)  Marvel / DC Mashup is hanging in a fine art gallery in Manhattan’s Lower East Side (Castle Fitzjohns Gallery • 98 Orchard St., NYC 10002). It’s titled (S)uperhero and it’s painting number seven of ten in my, (Colin C. Jorgensen aka Cojo “Art Juggernaut”) #10Subjects series.

It was just delivered yesterday as part of my month long 10-giant-piece solo exhibit, and it will continue to grow with the final two subjects are added in the weeks to come (Show runs Sept. 25th – Oct. 23rd).

The 8 foot by 3 foot acrylic on canvas is a mashup of Marvel & DC heroes and villains. It joins the other seven completed subjects, and couldn’t have arrived at a better time, it’s New York Super Week (Oct 3rd – 12th). Comic book related events and panels have popped up all over the city.

Back in 2007 I was actually invited by New York Comic Con to have a free booth in Artist Alley to unveil the (S)uperhero drawings from my 2005-2006 Sketch Experiment Sketch365 which would eventually be translated into canvas as one of the 10(S)ubjects. SEVEN YEARS LATER the canvas is finally complete and hanging in a Manhattan gallery.


Remaining individual sketches are available for sale at Castle Fitzjohns.

  1. Absolutely LOVE the (S)uperhero piece! Very different techniques, but I suspect you share the same appreciation of the superhero/comic book genre as my husband, Billy Tackett. Feel free to check out some of his “splatter” paintings…I think you’ll appreciate those as well.
