Jacob Bannon of Converge Rebirths Frankenstein at Universal Monsters Gallery - Mondo - Austin, Texas

Epic, impressionistic, heavy, gritty, intense, powerful, legit, take no bullsh*t... these are all words I use to describe the artwork of Jacob Bannon, who is also the frontman of perhaps the most influential hardcore band in history...  Massachusetts' CONVERGE.

I'm a huge fan of Jacob Bannon... his art, his work ethic, his look...  A thin roaring tattooed frame... bellowing with earth shaking confidence.  Intelligent, prepared, creative warfare.  I'm a huge fan of CONVERGE.

We drove down to Austin, Tx a couple weeks ago to see, in person!, the debut of Jacob Bannon's new painting at The Universal Monsters art show... an exhibit themed around the Universal Monster movies of the 30's & 40's 'that gave rise to cinema's modern horror genre... Frankenstein, Dracula, The Wolf Man, The Mummy.'
