Here's What People Are Saying About Hyaena:

DO YOUR BALLS ITCH? What is irritating you so much to make you so hateful
by bashing my brother? I feel sorry for you and think that you should take up knitting
instead of criticizing art and the artists that actually have talent, unlike yourself.
He should be making even more money for the art that he creates
from his lovely imagination!!
LORI RYDEN, sister of famous person - October 9, 2009

horribly rendered shock art that is impotent. That's the critique of most
of the pieces that spew from your gallery.
RICK DIETZ, graphic designer (I'm guessing) - June 17, 2010

10 Interpretations of Legendary Monsters at Hyaena Gallery
By Liz Ohanesian
LA Weekly Art Blog - Published on April 23, 2012

"One can only imagine the kind of nightmares that might stem from hanging Jeremy Cross' homage to one of the scariest movies ever made on a bedroom wall. In Captain Howdy, the local artist captures all the terror of The Exorcist's resident demon. I shivered at first sight of this intense oil painting."

Best Dark Arts Gallery - 2011
By Diamond Bodine-Fischer
LA Weekly - Published on October 7, 2011

"There's an art gallery for absolutely everyone in Los Angeles, even fans of the macabre. Hyaena Gallery carries a large collection of "dark art" prints and original pieces, and frequently hosts similarly themed shows."

Charlie Sheen Inspires 'Winning' Art Show at Hyaena Gallery
By Siran Babayan
LA Weekly Art Blog - Published on April 4, 2011

"He may have been recently booed on stage in Detroit, but Burbank still loves Charlie Sheen.
Though the crazy train that is Sheen's 22-city live tour has yet to schedule L.A. as a stop, the
warlock/tiger/Adonis/violent torpedo of truth himself stopped by Hyaena for Winning: The Charlie
Sheen Exhibit (running through April 15). And what better place to host an art show inspired by
his wacky ramblings than a gallery that specializes in Gothic, horror and serial killer art?"

Hyaena Gallery on the WIN!
By Churn Magazine
Churn Magazine Blog - Published on April 4, 2011

"Everyone knew that on April first outsider art guru Bill Shafer would be hosting a show at
Burbank’s Hyaena Gallery called ‘Winning’in which participating artists would present their
interpretations of the insider/outsider warlock himself…Charlie Sheen. What they didn’t know
however was that Sheen himself would show up in advance, leaving information everywhere that
the ‘Winning’ show had ‘sold out’ before it even opened."

A Preview Of L.A.'s Charlie Sheen Themed Art Exhibition, "Winning"
by Gabriel Bell
Refinery29.com - Published on April 1, 2011

"Charlie Sheen's descent into madness (or rise into awesomeness), has been mana from
heaven for comics, bloggers, T-shirt makers, cable news stations, and pretty much every facet
of modern media. Don't you think it's about time the practitioners of the fine arts got off their troll
asses and started strafing that shit with some creative napalm?"

The Madness of Charlie Sheen
By Derek Thomas
LA Weekly - Published March 2011

"What could possibly be crazier than Charlie Sheen? How about an art show inspired by
Charlie Sheen? Hyaena Gallery's #WINNING takes the actor's madness into the realm of fine
art, with paintings by local artists interpreting Sheen's rants. Must be seen to be believed:
Chuck Hodi's zombified Sheen in charcoal and pastels; Sheen made up as Aladdin Sane,
à la David Bowie album cover, courtesy Jim Wirt; and "Thundercat," Nicolas Caesar's
acrylic-on-canvas take on the self-proclaimed tiger-blooded Adonis. Duh! Winning!"

Having the Last Laugh - Works in eclectic Burbank art gallery make one squirm — and wonder.
By Melonie Magruder
Burbank Leader - Published on November 14, 2009

"If that sounds too Goth-centric, it’s not. It’s more a sly commentary on underground rebellion and the timeless pleasures afforded by B movies of the 1950s, a keen pursuit of the three-year-old gallery’s proprietor, Bill Shafer."

Juxtapalooza - The Lowbrow sickness continues to spread, from Burbank to Laguna
By Doug Harvey
LA Weekly - Published on September 09, 2008

"With the rough edges that gave Lowbrow its outlaw reputation smoothed out by this newfound
common ground with the family-values set, and the Art World bending over to assimilate it,
maybe the Juxtapoz juggernaut has arrived at an impasse. Totems, totems everywhere. But
where's the taboo? Turns out it's in Burbank. Hyaena, a little goth boutique/Lowbrow gallery on
Olive Avenue, has become embroiled in controversy due to its most recent show (which closed
September 5). Harkening back to the formative dynamics of the Lowbrow scene, Hyaena is
very much community oriented, providing a venue for several dozen local junior Juxtapozers,
while maintaining an edge by selling artworks by such controversial figures as Charles Manson
and John Wayne Gacy."

Hyaena Gallery : Interviews w/ Bill Shafer, Clint Carney and Jeremy Cross

Mishmash Magazine - May 9, 2008

"Tucked away in the serene community of Burbank, a treasure trove of eclectic goodies and art exists within the four walls of the Hyaena Boutique and Gallery. Hyaena's head honcho, Bill Shafer, has successfully created an unpretentious, artist-friendly environment where you can indulge your darker side without breaking the bank."
