This Friday marks the opening of Hero Complex Gallery’s King for a Day, an art tribute to the works of Stephen King. The author’s stories are iconic to say the least, and the exhibit is likely to be heaven for the hoards of King fans out there (myself included). In anticipation of the event, artist Nick Comparone has given us the opportunity to debut two of his mini-paintings for the show. Entitled Carrietta White and Annie Wilkes, Comparone has chosen two of King’s most dangerous women, presented in handmade, one-of-a-kind spray paint editions. Comparone’s stencil-aesthetic and presentation bring out the multi-faceted nature of each character, presenting them in ominous and vivid tones.

Visit Design and Destroy for more of Comparone, and Hero Complex Gallery for full show info.
