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 »
