The Bottleneck Gallery, Poster Posse and Warner Bros has teamed up for a “Tribute Of Kong” art show in anticipation of the release of Kong: Skull Island. After the jump we have an exclusive premiere of artist Karl Fitzgerald‘s three stunning Skull Island prints which were created for the show.
Beautiful eh? I particularly like the one feature Bree Larson’s character touching Kong’s face. The high saturated look is a good tribute to the film’s unique cinematic look. Here is some more information about the exhibition and the people involved:
KONG is an influential cinematic icon that has inspired nothing short of a pop culture movement. His references appear in more than television and movies… They are also found in music, fashion and art. Kong is a source of creative inspiration for generations of fans. In celebration of his iconic status and the release of ?Kong: Sku?ll Island Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Entertainment will curate a series of Kong – Tribute Art to be showcased in a limited engagement gallery at the Bottleneck Gallery in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. In addition to film marketing materials and fan art, the gallery will feature 7 original pieces from artists around the world commissioned by Poster Posse and 3 original pieces commissioned by Bottleneck Gallery.
