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.

DKNG Icon Jurassic

Every film has one. A signature prop, set, or location. Something that, in a single image, can represent the entire movie. The design team of Dan Kuhlken and Nathan Goldman, also known as DKNG, call these images “Icons,” and they are the subject of their first ever solo show at Gallery 1988 West in Los Angeles opening Saturday June 14.

The show, called simply Icon, is comprised of 50 pieces featuring iconic places and things from some of your favorite movies and TV shows of all time. Things like Star Wars, Beavis and Butthead, The Shining, Back to the Future, Office Space, Groundhog Day, Arrested Development, Willy Wonka, Jurassic Park, the list goes on and on. Each piece is small – 12 inches square – and is of one thing that sums up an entire movie. And of course, each is done in DKNG’s distinctive bright, geometric yet detailed style.

Below, check out our exclusive reveal of just eight of the 50 pieces you’ll be able to see and purchase in person Saturday at Gallery 1988. Read More »

The two best words a casual poster collector can hear are “Timed Release.” That means that for a certain amount of time anyone who wants a poster can order one; and the seller will print as many as are ordered. It’s a rare occurrance, saved for only the most popular artists doing the most popular topics. The latest one totally qualifies.

Gallery 1988 just announced they’ll be releasing Scott Campbell‘s gorgeous piece from the traveling Ghostbusters 30th anniversary show (coming to LA this week) as a timed edition giclee. Find out when it goes on sale below. Read More »
