Liquitex and NYCC Team Up For Debut Event to Celebrate Real-Life Superheroes 

As a dedicated supporter of artistry and goodwill all over the world, Liquitex is proud to announce our involvement in "Heroes After Dark", a special event set to kick off this year's New York Comic Con which occurred on October 5 at the Highline Ballroom in Chelsea, New York. With the event taking place during National Anti-Bullying Awareness Month, NYCC celebrated young people who are making a difference in their communities - real-life "superheroes".

As a highlight of this event, Liquitex brand ambassador Sebastien “Mr. D” Boileau painted an original Gotham styled New York City skyline live on the main stage. "Mr. D" has generously agreed to donate his work of art to benefit DoSomething.org, the event's official non-profit partner. The piece of art is currently up for auction at www.32auctions.com/Liquitex with 100% of the proceeds going to young people who are making a difference in the community, hopefully encouraging others to do the same.

NYCC organizer (and leading producer of pop culture events) ReedPOP has announcing a variety of impressive activations and partnerships for the event, which will be produced in partnership with CAA Premium Experience (a division of leading entertainment and sports agency Creative Artists Agency). Entertainment Weekly, the media partner for the event, will provide coverage of the red carpet and give fans a behind-the-scenes look into the fun that happens for superheroes and villains ‘After Dark.’

About Sebastien “Mr. D” Boileau:  

Sebastien “Mr. D” Boileau was born in Versailles, France, and was influenced by the American Pop Art and Graffiti movement of the 60s, 70s, and 80s. He began his artistic endeavors in Paris in 1987 at the age of 14. In 1989, Mr. D created his first piece of canvas art, as well as his first large scale mural. In the early-90s he began to travel the world painting in remote countries like Sierra Leone, Tunisia, Senegal, and many western destinations. In 1995, Mr. D was invited to participate in his first contemporary art group show in Paris. He migrated to the United States in 1998 and in 2000 launched what is now a highly successful mural company in Houston, Texas, Eyeful Art Murals and Designs, serving both the public and private sectors. Mr. D’s signature style is known as “Canpressionism“ a neo-impressionist style primarily done with spray paint and street art techniques. www.mrd1987.com Instagram: @mrd1987
