Chris Hassig's Saiopor

Oct 23, 2020

Local artist Chris Hassigs fictional city Ralesis, capital of Saiopor, might be considered indulgent or eccentric, but the latest version of it on exhibit at the R2 Gallery is dense in its detail and compelling in its execution. KDNK's Luke Nestler spoke with Chris about his city, his show, and his art.

Chris has been living with his fictional city for more than 20 years, and it keeps evolving, now including elaborate novelistic descriptions of some of its neighborhoods.
