For two years, Austin based artist Tim Doyle has been proving locations on television are as essential as the characters. The Kwik-E-Mart on The Simpsons; the RV in Breaking Bad; Castle Greyskull in Masters of the Universe; these locations are as important to their show as Homer, Walt or He-Man. Now, for the third year in a row, Doyle emphasizes that point with the art show UnReal Estate III, which opens Thursday February 6 at Spoke Art in San Francisco. The artist has once again made iconic locations from popular shows into beautiful art.
In the past, Doyle’s tackled The Sopranos, Sesame Street, Downton Abbey, Doctor Who and so many others. This year, we’re proud to exclusively debut Doyle’s takes on Game of Thrones, Pee Wee’s Playhouse, Lost, Adventure Time, Six Feet Under and The Munsters. Which is only a fraction of the show.

When you think of filmmakers who build unique, vast worlds, five that certainly come to mind are Guillermo del Toro, Terry Gilliam, Stanley Kubrick, David Lynch and Ridley Scott.

Though two recent remakes have tarnished the original’s reputation a tad, the 1981 Clash of the Titans remains a cult classic. Featuring Ray Harryhausen’s final visual effects, the film follows a hero named Perseus on an epic quest pitting him against Gods and monsters. It’s total Eighties cheese, but that lends itself perfectly to artist interpretation. Which is where Mondo comes in, as the outfit has chosen the film for two posters to kick off its 2014 offerings. They also just announced a mysterious event called Mondo Con that’ll take place in Austin, TX September 20-21, smack dab in the middle of Fantastic Fest.
