The Wolfbat is born from the Nordic legend of Fenris yet has generated its own mythology. The Wolfbat is a conjurer and conqueror. The Wolfbat is reflective and meditative.

The Wolfbat is the soul of featured artist Dennis McNett.

Known Gallery is proud to present Temple of Wolfbat, an installation, collection and retrospective of Dennis McNett’s profound and spiritual work. Sculpture, leather etching, collage painting, and wood carving all play roles in the Temple, as Brooklyn-based McNett brings his animalistic storytelling journey to the renowned Known Gallery, Los Angeles November 16 through 30, 2013.

A 30-foot Viking ship sailing the wrong way down 10th Avenue in Manhattan with a metal band playing and fireworks exploding. A collaboration with Swoon in Milan. Barney’s windows on Madison Avenue, and in Chicago and Seattle. Projects with Vans, Antihero and Volcom. Exhibits from Berlin and Copenhagen to Estonia and Mexico. Museums, skateboards, galleries and city streets have all served as backdrops to McNett’s creative evolution, a powerful mix of sophistication and grit. ““It’s easy to by cynical in this world. For me, it’s not always easy to walk through life with positivity and try to offer that positivity back to the world,” says McNett. “I find it fun and effective to offer it with characters, story telling, collaboration, made-up myth and meditation. Temple of Wolfbat is a combination of all these things.”

In addition to the Temple of Wolfbat, the McNett show will feature a complete project room retrospective of Dennis’s work for Antihero Skateboards, a lineage of decks dating back to 2006.

ABOUT DENNIS MCNETT

Born in Virginia Beach, VA in 1972, Dennis McNett and his trusty 4.5mm V-notch carving tool have made their mark across the US and around the world. As powerful on white gallery and museum walls as on the street or a skateboard deck, McNett’s art pays homage to Nordic legend in myriad spiritual executions across numerous mediums. Recognized for his talent by everyone from Juxtapoz Magazine to the Jeffrey Deitch Art Parade, McNett enjoys sharing his inspiration with little kids, art students, skateboarders, and art collectors alike.
