Cool Stuff: Beastie Boys Inspired Art

The Beastie Boys aren’t exactly movie related, but their music videos (some by Spike Jonze) have inspired very cinematic images. Gallery 1988 has a Beatie Boys inspired art show titled “Under the Influence” at their Los Angeles gallery, which will be open until January 29th 2009. I thought we’d take a look at some of our favorite pieces (particularly the more sci-fi and 70′s movie inspired pieces) from the show.

The piece above is from /Film favorite Eric Tan. You might remember Tan’s work on some of the conceptual Pixar posters a while back. “Fly To Tokyo” is inspired by the old vacation posters. The original art is sold, but 123 limited edition prints are available on archival paper for $100 each. Contact Gallery1988 for more details (gallery1988@aol.com or 323-937-7088). More art after the jump.
