Friday July 26, Gallery 1988 will turn Melrose Avenue (the street) into Melrose Place (the party-centric TV show). Both their galleries are having major pop-culture art openings which are sure to turn the four blocks between them into a madhouse of strolling art fans. We’ll be posting art from both shows and here’s the first.
At Gallery 1988 East, Mark Englert will have his first solo show called Director Series: Kubrick. It’s an entire show of posters based on the films of the legendary director, and the first in a soon-to-be annual tradition of Englert applying his signature detailed landscape style to the films of a specific director. Below, we exclusively debut Englert’s posters for 2001: A Space Odyssey and Dr. Strangelove. Read More »

For the past few days, we’ve been drawing (pun intended) your attention to ton awesome exclusive art that’ll be available at San Diego Comic-Con. We’re shown you Mondo, Marvel, some movies, and if you read Page 2 or Superhero Bits, there have been several peppered in there too. With Comic-Con officially kicking off Wednesday night, we figured it was a good time to do show you a bunch more. This should, hopefully, help fans who are heading to San Diego find some cool pieces to target, and also give fans outside San Diego lots of variety to click through.
Gallery 1988 has a booth with some very cool exclusives including some official Sharknado posters and The Shining by Mark Englert. Olly Moss will be sharing a booth with Mike Mitchell and Scott Campbell, and each will be selling exclusive video game, movie and comic book art. Kevin Tong will debut some new work including Fritz Lang‘s Metropolis. Acme Archives has a ton of exclusives include some great Simpsons and Power Rangers stuff and Nerd HQ will debut their insane, star-studded Nerds Versus Aliens art work which will be available for charity.

Have you noticed that most of the late night IMAX screenings for the past year or so have been giving out limited edition posters? That tradition will continue, and expand, will the release of J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek Into Darkness. IMAX is launching a new program called IMAX FanFix, which teams up with talented artists and curators to give fans high-quality, limited edition art. The first poster in the series is an awesome poster by Mark Englert and Gallery 1988, which will be given to fans who attend 8 p.m. IMAX screenings on May 15. You can see a small tease above.
Below, find a link to all the participating theaters, see a brand new clip featuring a showdown between John Harrison (Benedict Cumberbatch) and Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) and find out how you can bid on a chance to meet J.J. Abrams at the film’s Hollywood premiere. Read More »
Glow in the dark inks on a poster can be hit or miss. In the best cases, they act as almost a night light, revealing a beautiful second image that’s invisible in the day time. On the other hand, some are so subtle and light, it’s almost as if they don’t glow in the dark at all. And maybe that’s a good thing.
The Bottleneck Gallery in Brooklyn, NY will surely have a little of both in their latest exhibit, When The Lights Go Out, which opens April 12. Over 60 artists have made brand new pieces with glow in the dark inks, which will be displayed at all hours via a new installation of blacklights.
Some of the topics of the art include 2001: A Space Odyssey (above), The Shawshank Redemption, Alien, Game of Thrones, Band of Brothers, Where the Wild Things Are, Tron, Poltergeist, Time Bandits and more. It looks like a very fun show. Check out a selection of art below.

Movies, in general, have happy endings. The hero triumphs over adversity and the audience leaves the theater feeling good. But what if the bad guy won? What if the bomb went off? While the happy ending dominates cinema, some of the best movies of all time have taken the ‘dark ending’ route, and now some that did not have been reimagined with new conclusions.
Alternate Endings is a brand new art show presented by the Silver Screen Society and opening December 14 at the Bottleneck Gallery in Brooklyn, NY. Each artist in the show picked one of their favorite movies and created a piece of art showing an “alternate ending.” So, for example, Godmachine surmised that Tetsuo won in Akira. Mark Englert reimagined James Bond’s childhood in Skyfall. Others changed the endings of Home Alone, RoboCop, The Dark Knight Rises and more.

When Mondo revealed they’d be doing Back to the Future posters, it was enough to get even the casual fan excited. But that was in March. They’ve finally revealed the second poster in the series and it’s by Mark Englert, a name that’s familiar to Alien or Breaking Bad fans but a newcomer to the Mondo roster. It’s of one of the iconic scenes in the film, the first time the DeLorean jumps to 1955 but – what makes it really special – is that its glow in the dark element shows exactly that. And then the variant is even more geeky. Check out the posters after the jump. Read More »
Even movie fans would agree some of the best entertainment made during the past two decades has been on premium cable. Whether it’s HBO shows like The Sopranos, The Wire, Sex and the City and Game of Thrones or Showtime shows like Dexter, Weeds and Homeland, movies are regularaly getting schooled by TV in terms of character, story and scope. Plus, even if you love a movie, it’s only two hours. A great TV show can be hundreds.
And while we’re all very used to seeing art inspired by movies, art inspired by TV always elicits a slightly more excited response which is why the brand new Bottleneck Gallery in Brooklyn, NY has picked premium TV for its first exhibit. More Than You Imagined: Art Inspired By Premium Cable opens September 7 and features work by Mark Englert, Kevin Ang, Brandon Schaefer, Joshua Budich, Tim Doyle and many others.
After the jump, check out a huge gallery of work from shows like all the ones mentioned above as well as The Kids in the Hall, Flight of the Conchords, Tales from the Crypt, Boardwalk Empire, Party Down and others, plus find out how you can see it yourself and see how you can buy a print for charity too.
