Andrew Goldfarb, the Slow Poisoner, is not the kind of creative type that will stop at just one endeavor. He’s an advice columnist. He’s a comic book writer and comic strip artist. He’s a one man band with the kind of hits that are often broadcast on late night college radio due to what some might describe as general weirdness. He’s also, and most importantly, a prolific painter of (in his own words) “the timeless, tasteful, medium of black velvet paintings.” The themes of his paintings range from tiki to the macabre, with swamp and folk iconography thrown in.
Opening night for The Slow Poisoner’s solo show will include musical performances from 8:00 to 9:00 p.m. and takes place at The Rat Factory, located above Glitter Death on Highland near Sunset.
