White Walls Gallery presents “Fraternal”, a two-man exhibition showcasing the Pen and Ink portraits of Dennis Capellan and Nikko Pelaez. Similar in medium but different in artistry, the two men join forces in communicating intricate visions through meticulous strokes of ink on paper, turning simple lines and dots into complex reflections.
Dennis Capella, an artist from Masbate City, connects the visual characteristics of humans and animals into elegant anthropomorphic figures providing for a fun and humorous take on the classical art of portraiture. Nikko Pelaez, as a painter known for usually painting colorful compositions, tries his hand on illustrating monochromatic heads to symbolize the numerous virtues we live by; a point of interest being the cut-out sections on the eyes of the figures as an invitation for the viewers to come and experience their stories.
