If you grew up in the past half century, then your childhood was probably filled with toys made by Mattel. My childhood was filled with a ton of He-Man figures and those M.U.S.C.L.E. minis could be found all over my room. I always wanted the Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots and a Mattel Overboard from Back to the Future Part II and childhood me would probably be shocked at which one of those officially released Mattel products future-Peter ended up owning.
A new art show will be opening up at Gallery 1988 next week called Mattel: A Tribute To 70 Years Of Toys. The show, curated by artist Dave Perillo, is a small group show that features different artists take on some of Mattel Brand most iconic toys from over the past 70 years. Hit the jump to find out more, see some artwork from the show, and learn what great artists (such as Dave Perillo and Tom Whallen — yes, thats his kick-ass Masters of the Universe piece above) are involved.

Find out details on how you can obtain both of these prints, and see the artwork in high resolution, after the jump.

Plain and simple, Dave Perillo‘s art makes us smile. It evokes feelings of childhood wonder with its bright colors, unique layouts and geometric styles. Filter some of pop culture’s most famous properties through that style and you’re left with pieces that represent both fandom and fun.
Perillo has been part of innumerable shows and released dozens of prints through Mondo, Gallery 1988, Acme Archives and many more. But, for the first time, Perillo now has a solo show at Gallery 1988. It’s called Squares 4 Squares and opens Friday August 22 at Gallery 1988 East, 7021 Melrose Ave., Los Angeles, CA. The show takes properties from the world of movies (Back to the Future, Star Wars), TV (Doctor Who, Scooby Doo) and video games (Super Mario Bros.) and compresses them down into squares that can be arranged however you like, or combined into one to tell an almost comic-like story.
Below, we’re proud to exclusively debut a few of the full run of almost 50 prints that’ll be in the show. Check them out below. Read More »

May 4th is a day to celebrate Star Wars, to celebrate the pageantry, the action and the legacy George Lucas first brought to the screen in 1977. And while we all know J.J.

Among those outlets are the Acme Archives, the official fine art licensee for Lucasfilm. They’ve commissioned an impressive line up of talented artist to make limited edition posters that’ll be released to the world on May 4 and we’re proud to debut four of the seven pieces.
