LOS ANGELES BASED iam8bit TO HOST FIRST SOLO EXHIBITION BY FORMER DISNEY AND PIXAR ARTIST BEN BUTCHER - OPENING NOVEMBER 7th

A SHOW CELEBRATING SATURDAY MORNINGS FULL OF CARTOONS, CEREAL, AND TOYS THAT FILLED OUR CHILDHOODS

 

October 29, 2013— In a tribute to Saturday mornings full of cartoons, cereal and toys, iam8bit studios (iam8bit.com) is hosting Ben Butcher’s first-ever solo exhibition, PART OF A COMPLETE BREAKFAST, opening Thursday November 7 (7-11pm) and ongoing until November 17th.

“The exhibition recalls the familiar childhood ritual of waking up early on Saturday mornings, scurrying to the TV in your pajamas and tuning into a smorgasbord of cartoons and commercials,” said Amanda White, co-owner of iam8bit. “Oh, and don’t forget the cereal!”

Butcher began his career in Product Design working at The Disney Stores developing merchandise for Disney and Pixar properties.  After 5 years, he moved on to Pixar Animation Studios, where he served as Creative Director for all Pixar Consumer Products. Last February he left Pixar to become the Vice President of Creative at Funko LLC in Seattle WA.

Butcher’s training as an artist grew from the encouragement of a few fantastic teachers in grade school who recognized his passion for art and pushed him to pursue it.  He studied fine arts at Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, and then transferred to California Institute of the Arts to study Character Animation.

“Because of his diverse background and training, Ben’s art is influenced by everything from abstract expressionism to naive folk painting,” said Jon M. Gibson, co-owner of iam8bit. “For PART OF A COMPLETE BREAKFAST, it’s all about nostalgia for popular cartoons, cereals and toys, like the illustrious Cap’N Crunch, Star Wars and Scooby Doo.”   

The exhibition will be hosted at iam8bit studios in Echo Park at 2147 W Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90026.
