The history between Gallery 1988 and the show Lost has been well-documented. The Los Angeles art gallery curated not one, but two uber-successful viral art campaigns centered around the final season of the show. Now, ten years since the show’s debut, they’re doing it one more time.
Gallery 1988 and Phantom City Creative have teamed up to do a limited edition screenprint for the 10th anniversary Lost reunion happening at PaleyFest in Los Angeles this weekend. See the full image below. Read More »

Every single day, artists make art based on films they love. It’s a little more rare for that art to influence the filmmaker it was originally about.
In 2010, the San Francisco art gallery Spoke Art debuted an exhibit called Bad Dads, based on the films of Wes Anderson. The exhibit featured work based on all of Anderson’s films up to that point. Since then, Bad Dads has become an annual event. It even gained the interest of Anderson himself, who said the following about the show in 2012: “Seeing somebody make artwork inspired by things in my movies is one of the most exciting things to me in a very selfish way. I feel like it’s a communication to me almost, even though they probably don’t intend it that way.” In one case, Anderson actually turned that communication into something quite literal.
In Anderson’s latest film, The Grand Budapest Hotel, paintings are part of one of the major narrative threads; several original paintings are essential to the story. To create one of them, Anderson contacted artist Rich Pellegrino, who first gained the director’s attention at the aforementioned Bad Dads show. Pellegrino made a piece in the film called “Two Lesbians Masturbating,” and told /Film he was contacted specifically because Anderson liked his work in Bad Dads.
It’s a crazy case of pop culture art not only piquing the interest of the original subject, but inspiring that artist in his own work. Below, read the story of how the whole thing went down. Read More »
