Cool Stuff: Joss Whedon Art Show At Gallery 1988

Joss Whedon Art show

Edgar Wright had one, J.J. Abrams had one, and now Joss Whedon is having one. Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles is hosing a Joss Whedon art show starting opening from 7-10 p.m. September 5 and on display through September 27.

Artists from around the world were given carte blanche to make all kinds of art based on the world of Whedon with the exception of The Avengers, because Gallery 1988 already hosted an Avengers exhibit a few years back. That means Buffy, Angel, Firefly, The Cabin in the Woods, Dr. Horrible, Dollhouse and more are all on the table. And the artists delivered in spades.

Below, we’ve got a huge sample of work from the Joss Whedon art show. Check it out. Read More »

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 »

Joey Spiotto Storytime

There’s just something wonderful about seeing your favorite pop culture properties reimagined as something unimaginable. Artist Joey Spiotto does that really well. In previous years, he’s become well-known for turning pop culture properties like Firefly, The Avengers and Lost into eye-catching album covers. Now he’s taking that tone and turning it into a full gallery exhibit by adapting properties like Breaking Bad, Pulp Fiction, Godzilla, Guardians of the Galaxy, A Clockwork Orange and others into children’s books reminiscent of Random House’s popular “Little Golden Books” series.

The exhibit is called Storytime: A Little Gallery Show and it opens August 1 at Gallery 1988 East in Los Angeles, CA. It consists of 50 properties from movies, TV, music and video games put through Spiotto’s unique children’s filter. Below, we’ve got a bunch of examples from the Joey Spiotto Gallery 1988 show.
