As you probably know by now, Gallery1988 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, and Jim Horwat’s Back to the Future Tribute. We should have a couple more exclusive looks in the coming weeks, but lets first take a look at some of the other fantastic art which has begun to appear around the interwebs.
We’ve featured some of Tom Whalen’s art in past editions of Cool Stuff (posters, Dark Knight magazine cover, Watchmen art, The Shining and The Warriors, Predator, 80’s super villains). Whalen has created two pieces for the Crazy4Cult 3D show, the first of which is this poster for Sam Raimi’s Army of Darkness. Apparently a limited edition run of 70 prints will be available at the show, or by contacting the gallery afterwards. We’ll keep you updated when and if these become available outside the show. You can see more of Tom’s wonderful artwork on deviantart.
You have also seen some of Dave Perillo‘s art in past editions of Cool Stuff (Random art, Watchmen, The Joker, Ghostbusters). For Crazy4Cult 3D he has created a 70’s or 80’s style board game based on The Goonies. Like Whalen, this is just the first of two pieces he will have on display at the show. They will also be making a limited edition run of 50 16″ x 20″ giclee prints signed and numbered. Check out more of Perillo’s art on deviant art. Gallery1988 is using the image on post cards to promote the show. Click on the image in the header of this post to get a better look.
In honor of the 20th anniversary of UHF, Keith Noordzy has created “Al of the Dead”.
Daniel Rizzolo created this awesome oil on board Pee-Wee Herman’s Big Adventure-inspired piece “I’m a Loner, a Rebel”.
