Artwork Previews for "Modern Heroes" by Jeremy Madl of MAD Toy Design


A preview of artworks by Jeremy Madl of MAD Toy Design an upcoming solo show "Modern Heroes" for October First Fridays at REACTOR, in Kansas City. Opening October 3rd (@ 5pm – 9pm) - we see Jeremy tackle Star Wars (on digital sketch) and MARVEL comicbook superheroes, with these pieces featuring spray paint and marker on 36x36 canvases!

"Jeremy Madl, toy designer and illustrator for MAD Toy Design, created this series of new paintings overlaying the “Modern Hero” character onto classic and iconic heroes from his childhood.

Growing up on a steady diet of cartoons, toys and video games in the 80’s and 90’s my love for these characters and stories runs deep. They’ve inspired my imagination for almost 40 years… but the ‘heroes’ of today are often motivated by profit rather than to inspire!

The ‘Modern Hero’ character in my work is just a skeleton of what he was in his glory days. Forever doomed with the burden of chasing ‘Big Money’ he’ll never be able to rest. Spawned during an age of creativity and imagination where he thrived, but now stuck living in an age of remakes and stagnation!
