One of the most sought after artists in music & film, Ken Taylor is responsible for some of the most stunning imagery in Mondo’s archive, often besting the original and undeniably great official artwork for classic films. Ken Taylor’s previous Mondo artwork can be viewed here.
“Flying halfway across the world to exhibit my work for this amazing collector niche still blows my mind every day. This is the culmination of many months of hard work and stress (but more importantly, fun), and I can’t wait to show it all,” said Taylor.
The show will include prints for films that Mondo has never previously tackled before, including the two preview pieces for Children of Men & Little Shop of Horrors.
