Trenton Doyle Hancock: I Made a Mound City in Miami Dade County

Locust Projects

16 Nov 201908 Feb 2020

Born in Oklahoma City in 1974, artist Trenton Doyle Hancock created at the age of 10 Torpedo Boy an alter ego/superhero he still uses today in his paintings, sculpture, drawings, prints, and installation.
Through his own creation myth, Hancock tells the story of the Mounds (gentle hybrid plant-like creatures) protected by Torpedo Boy, and their enemies, the Vegans (mutants who consume tofu and spill Mound blood every chance they get). This parallel universe explores good and evil, authority, race, class, moral relativism, politics and religion, as well as making unapologetic nods to comic books, illustrations, animations, horror films, and toys.
