Graphic Designer Koa Beam

Opening Saturday, March 3, 2018

We are thrilled to welcome a brand new exhibit to the Community Arts Center, featuring the superhero, sci-fi, and fantasy character art and illustration of graphic designer Koa Beam.

Because some of the art is spooky or sensual in nature, it is intended for a mature audience, and parental guidance is encouraged.

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
