Bill Thelen

Drawing Room presents sad support for vr gang a new suite of drawings by Bill Thelen for one night only at Raleigh Denim Workshop during the First Friday event in Downtown Raleigh, where there will be a place to draw in the Raleigh Denim factory and chance to make a sketchbook using recycled Raleigh Denim materials.

For this body of work, Thelen pulls from a variety of sources including art history, subversive anime clubs, experimental manga creators, subliminal luxury goods, and other unpopular culture variables. Thelen constructs his drawings into fragmented and non-linear narratives that loosely revolve around the struggles of workers for a vr corporation as they try to make sense of the lives they've created outside the confines of a virtual world.
