Adam Radvinsky, a visual arts student at Place des Arts since 2016, had “a bunch of ideas for comics” last year but couldn’t settle on a protagonist.
“One day, I was doodling at school and created a character who looked like an awesome guy named Ned,” he said.
His finished product — using pencil, pencil crayon and pen, and aptly titled Ned — is now on show at the Coquitlam facility as part of its annual student exhibition in the Atrium Gallery.
The display features 51 pieces from 33 artists, including Radvinsky, a Coquitlam resident who studied comics and cartooning under Kenten Bowick.
Also on exhibit until June 26 is the alumni exhibition in the Mezzanine Gallery and Images and Ideas by students in Don Portelance’s Art Enhancement class for advanced students.
