A Mister Rogers and John Waters mashup? Two Thangs shows pop culture art at AS220

Providence is well known for its vibrant arts scene, from its galleries and museums to the colorful murals on the sides of buildings. One recent transplant is bringing his unique pop-art vision to downtown in a show at AS220.

Matthew Brennan IV, who creates his art under the name Two Thangs, will show his work through March 26 at the exhibit “Voices Speaking Loudly,” the first show at AS220 since the pandemic hit two years ago.

The name Two Thangs comes from Brennan’s mashup concept, which combines two elements of pop culture, whether it’s the TV shows “Bob’s Burgers” and “Twin Peaks,” journalist and author Hunter S. Thompson with a lion, or a snail on a banana. The inspiration comes from conversations he has with folks and what they’d like to see in a work of art.
