Poi-Boy Graphix

Community Arts Center

of Cambria County


Koa Beam

Opening Reception on March 3rd from 1pm - 3pm

About the Artist : Born and raised as a resident of Cambria County, Koa graduated from Westmont Hilltop High School in 1991. Since then, he has been working in numerous graphics and design in numerous capacities. Currently he is a lead graphic artist for a Virginia "think tank," CANA Advisors. In his free time as an artist, he does sci-fi and fantasy illustration for books and games. Koa loves drawing commissioned character artwork. He comments, "I've been on the outer rim of the comic book and fantasy art scene for a good number of years now, and as of late I've been building a reputation for doing kick-butt BarArt." Koa draws his trademark BarArt at the drop of a hat with nothing more than a pencil, a ballpoint pen, and a sharpie (if one is handy). Recently he has been engrossed in utilizing higher quality art materials by means of an evening with friends at his various social media sites: Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram (@koabeam), and of course at his seldom, if ever, updated website koabeam.com. Poi-Boy GraphiX will be on display from March 3rd – 30th. The public is welcome to visit the Goldhaber-Fend Fine Arts Gallery, with free admission, from 10:00 A.M. – 5:00 P.M. weekdays and Saturdays from 10:00 A.M. – 3:00 P.M. A $5 donation is encouraged.
