Imagine – New Works by Terrance Vann

October 1 to 31, 2018
Reception: Sunday, October 14, 12 to 4 p.m.

Vann infuses elements of contemporary street culture into his work and explores the human experience. His works have a distinct style, calling to mind both ornate street art and surrealism. “The overall thing I’m trying to establish with my art is something I’m calling neo-Afro-surrealism,” says Vann. “We’ve seen so many art movements that have been spearheaded by different artists, but there hasn’t been a whole lot of genres that are attributed to African-Americans.”

 “It’s everyday city life, which a lot of people shy away from,” he says. “I try to highlight what never gets highlighted, in a way that’s appealing visually but leaves questions — what neighborhood are they from? why’s that expression on their face? That’s what we should be asking about — the people who are going through things that we may not understand.”

Vann’s art was recently featured at the Delaware Art Museum in an exhibition called UPRISING, a multidisciplinary art production that also features choreography by Ashley SK Davis. He is excited to announce he has been selected to participate in the Ante Art Fair, one of the biggest new art fairs across the pond in London.

Vann is a graduate of Wilmington’s Cab Calloway School for the Arts and also studied at the School of Visual Arts in New York and at the Art Institute in Philadelphia, was a 2017 Delaware Division of the Arts Individual Artist Fellowship recipient.
