As you probably know by now, Gallery 1988 will be holding their third annual pop culture art show Crazy4Cult 3D from July 16th to August 8th in Los Angeles. Over the past couple weeks we’ve featured a couple of the fantastic art that will be on display at the show, including Jeff Boyes’ take on Luc Besson’s 1994 film The Professional, Jim Horwat’s Back to the Future Tribute, Tom Whalen’s Army of Darkness, Dave Perillo’s Goonies board game, Keith Noordzy’s Al of the Dead and Daniel Rizzolo’s Pee-Wee Herman-inspired “I’m a Loner, a Rebal”, Tom Whalen’s UHF poster and epic art parodying 19 cult film references by Dan Lydersen.
The piece above is by Nathan Stapley, and is titled The Founding Members Of The Society of In Control Time Travelers. See more of Nathan’s art on his blog. Prints will be available for $50. Seven more pieces from the art exhibition are available for your viewing pleasure after the jump.
Yesterday we told you that New York’s Museum of Modern Art was going to have an exhibition of the art of Tim Burton. The exhibition will include “over 700 examples of rarely or never-before-seen drawings, paintings, storyboards, moving-image works, puppets, maquettes, costumes, and cinematic ephemera, and includes an extensive film series spanning Burton’s 27-year career.” This event also coincides with The Art of Tim Burton book that Brendon wrote about in April. Read the the full press release here.
MOMA has finally granted us access to a sampling of the pieces you can expect at the show. Eight more images, available after the jump.
Remember the Crazy4Cult pop culture art show we wrote about back in August? Well Gallery 1988 has released some new limited edition prints from Alex Pardee’s Cult Series.
