Another year, another glow in the dark art show at New York City’s Bottleneck Gallery. Last year’s event drew massive crowds, there to admire pop culture art made with glow in the dark inks, and this year should be more of the same.
When The Lights Go Out 2 opens Saturday March 22 and remains on display through April 9. As is the case with most group shows, a huge number of artists tackled a huge variety of properties. What makes this one different is every few minutes, the Bottleneck team turns off the regular lights and turns on a barrage of blacklights to show the treasures hidden in every single piece.
Below, we’ve got a bunch of work from the show including posters for Preacher, Akira, Spirited Away, Big Trouble in Little China, Despicable Me and They Live. Plus, we’re proud to exclusively debut popular artist Mark Englert‘s piece for the video game Bioshock. It’s a stunning work that must be seen to be believed (that’s just a taste above). Check it all out below.
First up, here is Mark Englert’s Bioshock piece called “New Eden”. It’s a 6 color screenprint measuring 20 x 30 inches. The regular is an edition of 200 but a variant, which looks the same except the glow in the dark is different, is an edition of 50. They cost $60 and $75 respectively.
And here’s just a small sampling of other pieces in the show, with the artist name available via mouse over. We’ve included the normal and glow in the dark inks for each piece. There are well over 60 pieces in the show and you can see it all online Sunday March 23. Details below.
When the Lights Go Out 2 opens at 7 p.m. March 22 and will remain open through April 9. It’s located at 60 Broadway, Brooklyn. Find more information at www.bottleneckgallery.com, and that’s also where the show will go on sale online at noon EST on March 23 at that link.
