Gallery 1988 30 Years Later

Every year, Gallery 1988 takes an opportunity to look back 30 years by featuring pop culture artwork inspired by the movies that came out three decades previously. This year it just so happens that the flashback is the same year of their namesake: 1988.

The entire gallery of pieces from the Gallery 1988 30 Years Later art show is available, and it features artwork from movies such as Beetlejuice, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Child’s Play, Die Hard, The Land Before Time, Twins, Bloodsport, Big, Coming to America, The Naked Gun and more.

As you can see, there’s far more representation for Who Framed Roger Rabbit and Beetlejuice, two of the most popular movies of the year. But there’s plenty of love for some of the other hits of the year as well. Personally, I wish that the Best Picture winning Rain Man was featured in this collection, but maybe that’s just me.

Featured artists for this show include Xander Lee, Shian Ng, Simon Delart, Nicholas Moegly, Matthew Lineham, Josh Eckert, John Barry Ballaran, Jason Yang, James Loram, Hans Woody, Fiona McCall, Erin Hunting, Danny Haas, Daniel Clark, Dan Nash, Chris McGuire, Catherine Moor, Bruce White and many more.

This is just a sample of our favorite pieces from the new art show. You can check out a bunch more pieces available, including some sculptures and originals, over at the Gallery 1988 shop. Some of the prints are already sold out, but there are plenty of others with larger edition sizes for you to pick up.

100% Soft Kaweidoscope Art

One of the most unique and unmistakable pop culture artists working today is 100% Soft. His adorable illustrations have brought cute flair to our favorite movies and television shows. His artwork is so delightful that the likes of Marvel Studios and Lucasfilm commissioned him to create the little emojis that appear on Twitter with certain character and title hashtags.

For his latest project, 100% Soft is getting a little trippy with his signature art style. The Gallery 1988 show Kaweidoscopes features 100% Soft’s familiar character designs, but in a symmetrical, circular pattern as if they were being viewed through a kaleidoscope. Not only are there regular prints of these new pieces, but there are also lenticular versions that make them all the more trippy. Read More »

Gallery 1988 - Dan Mumford - Close Encounters of the Third Kind

With the plethora of prints out there paying tribute to our favorite movies and TV shows, it’s always nice to have an artist whose style is uniquely their own. That’s why we love Dan Mumford so much.

We’ve featured plenty of Dan Mumford’s work before, but now he has a solo show coming to Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles this weekend with a whole new slate of pieces paying tribute to the likes of Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Gremlins, Dune, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze and more.

Crazy 4 Cult 11 Art

Gallery 1988 has delivered another round of incredible pop culture artwork with Crazy 4 Cult 11, the latest iteration of the recurring exhibition of artwork paying tribute to some of our favorite movies.

This time we have a collection that includes pieces honoring movies like Gremlins, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, The Big Lebowski, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, Poltergeist, Blade Runner, Beetlejuice, Back to the Future, and even The Room.

Alphabitz Art Show

Two of our favorite pop culture artists working today are undoubtedly Tom Whalen and Dave Perillo. We’ve featured their work when they’ve had shows together, and we’ve even featured them when they tackle two different animated shows for adults. Now they’re back for another team show, this time delivering the ABCs of pop culture in a new show called Alphabitz.

Alphabitz does exactly what you would expect it to by having Tom Whalen and Dave Perillo create pop culture pieces inspired by the alphabet. For example, there’s P for Predator, V for Voltron, B for BB-8 and much more. But beyond having these familiar characters from pop culture representing a letter, what they’re doing is also indicative of the letter chosen, which makes for some goofy scenarios, like Freddy Krueger filing his nails in France, or Dracula driving Miss Daisy in a Dodge.

Check out pieces from the Alphabitz art show below, including some debut images given exclusively to /Film. Read More »

Gallery 1988 Rick and Morty

We’re still waiting to find out when Rick and Morty will return to Adult Swim for their third season, though we do have a small idea of what to expect thanks to an unfinished sneak preview from a little while back. For those who are still desperately waiting to get schwifty again with the universe’s most insane grandfather and grandson duo, we have something to hold you over.

This past weekend, Gallery 1988 opened a special Rick and Morty artwork exhibition, and all of the artwork is now online for you to check out yourself. There are even some pieces that are still available for purchase. Read More »

Every single week there’s at least one awesome new piece of artwork paying tribute to the movies and TV shows that we love, and we even have some artists whose work we’re so excited to see. Now one of those artists provides some background in this little niche world of alternative movie posters for those who may not be well-versed in this hobby.
