There is so much cool talent in the district, and Work Crush Wednesday is our way of spotlighting those whose work we're swiping right for.  

This week we're crushing hard over Richmond-born, D.C. artist SUPERWAXX and her recent piece for FearTeen, a Halloween themed art show at Hole In The Sky DC this Saturday.

SUPERWAXX is one of the many district-based artists showcasing her spooky work, but we just love the vibrant colors and childhood nostalgia that this piece embodies.  And as if the visuals weren't enough to swoon over, this is the message she wrote to go along with it on Instagram:

"In 2011 the Republican Party proposed that there should be a budget cut that provides funding to public broadcasting services(PBS/NPR). This would mean that creative programming shows such as Sesame Street would be greatly affected by the financial loss. A lot of children receive educational, emotional and artistic enrichment through PBS and animated programs like Sesame Street. As a young child I was one of those children who loved Sesame Street and to this day I still do. Why destroy free educational programming when it is essential to the lives of many generations? Certainly young children who may not have access to cable television, streaming video services or even daycare."


SUPERWAXX, nice work- we see you! Follow her amazing feed at @superwaxx and check out "THE VAMP!RE SLAYER" in person at FearTeen October 31st from 5-11pm (it's a Halloween show so costumes are encouraged!) 



Tag your work on IG & Twitter--or someone whose work you’re crushing on--so we can see it and feature it on the site!
