About Hank VonHellion
Hank VonHellion is a New England based artist and community leader. His work typically addresses and reflects on issues of race, agency, and our global responsibility to be competent stewards. He has recently concluded a solo show at the Worcester Art Museum entitled Bad Advice Club where he ruminated on the anxiety that people of color feel when drawn to cultural spaces that don’t reflect themselves or their culture. His multimedia work includes aspects of sculpture, found art, and traditional graffiti elements.
Outside of his own creative work, Hank has been active on a number arts and community based boards. Most recently he has been voted in as Corporator of the Worcester Art Museum. His piece for Idol Hands, Last Steer of the Apocalypse, is a satiric view of the future outcome our collective neglect will have on our global quality of life. In this case, rather than the divine nature of a traditional Christian apocalypse our self-imposed judgement is one of mediocrity and an ever decreasing circle of choice.
