The Amazing Black-Man is opening soon at Lowell Ryan Projects. This exhibition by Brooklyn-based artist Kumasi J. Barnett is the artist’s first solo show in Los Angeles. His works riff on classic superhero series including The Amazing Spider-Man, The Incredible Hulk, Superman, Daredevil and Captain America. The show features several dozen hand-painted comic book works pinned up in their clear plastic sleeves. For each work, Barnett has painted over the cover of an old Marvel or DC comic book, replacing familiar heroes with characters including “The Amazing Black-Man,” “The Media’s Thug,” “Whitedevil,” and “Police-Man.”
