Put Martin Scorsese up against any filmmaker and the native New Yorker has a fighting shot. Hawkes? Ford? Kubrick? Hitchcock? Spielberg? All legends, but Scorsese is undeniably in the same league. And this weekend marks one of the first full gallery shows specifically dedicated to his films.
Spoke Art has taken over New York’s Bold Hype Gallery for Scorsese: An Art Show Tribute, featuring work based on films such as Goodfellas, Raging Bull, Taxi Driver, The Departed, Gangs of New York, Casino and many more. Artists such as Scott Campbell, Joshua Budich, Dave Perillo, Fernando Reza, Jayson Weidel, Jessica Deahl, Jon Smith, New Flesh, Paul Shipper, Rhys Cooper, Rich Pellegrino and Sam Smith have all contributed to the show, which is open Friday April 19 through Sunday April 21.

This December will mark ten years since Wes Anderson released The Royal Tenenbaums and it remains as breathtaking today as it was in 2001. The unique portrait of an eclectic New York family of artists would have been interesting on its own but mix it up with Anderson’s trademark style and it pops off the screen. A new piece by artist Rich Pellegrino does the same thing, taking Anderson’s memorable characters and immortalizing them in his trademark watercolor-esque style. Check out your exclusive first look at the full piece after the jump and find out when you can buy it. Read More »
Attending Gallery1988′s Crazy4Cult shows is sometimes disappointing. Some of the art you see previewed online isn’t made available in art prints, and the original art, while awesome, is too expensive for many to afford. I was hoping to pick up prints of Rich Pellegrino‘s pieces at this year’s Crazy 4 Cult show, but alas, none were available. Well, Gallery1988 must have heard the demand and is selling limited editions of the pictures, giclee print on archival paper, each hand signed and numbered by the artists. Each print is available in two sizes, 8.5 x 11 inches and 13 x 19 inches for $25 and $75. And the edition number is just 50 prints. Hit the jump to see the art for yourself. Click over to G1988 to purchase the prints now.
