Becca Dent Hanagan is an emerging artist living in Philadelphia who primarily works in Portraiture. After receiving a BFA from Moore College of Art and Design in 2005, Becca started working at the Free Library of Philadelphia, promoting the arts and molding young minds for the LEAP After- School program.
During the next 15 years, Becca would work to perfect her skills and find her voice. She would begin teaching both group and private art lessons for adults and children as well as find a love for curating art exhibits. All of this would be done within her local community!
In the past year, Becca has shown her work in nine different shows and in four diverse galleries, one of those being Avenue Cup Café where she personally curated art exhibits.
Becca has also started selling her work in sticker form at a local shop specifically for Philadelphia area artists.
She has emerged into the Philly arts scene with a range of work consisting of a variety of themes and mediums.
Her work is raw, surreal, often painted and drawn, collected treasures, photographs of her favorite haunts, symbols of her Indian heritage and macabre kindred spirits.
One thing for sure, Becca’s work comes straight from her heart.
