Joel Phillips - Scorsese - header

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.

Check out a small sampling of the work below. Read More »

2013 seems to be the year of Oscar-themed pop culture art. Gallery 1988 did an amazing event, Mondo is preparing their own extravaganza and Scott Campbell has been adding to his Great Showdowns.

All this week leading up to the 85th Annual Academy Awards, Campbell has been immortalizing some of this year’s Best Picture nominees as Showdowns. And they are just too cool. That’s Argo above but, after the jump, see Beasts of the Southern Wild, Lincoln, Les Miserables and Django Unchained as only Scott C could do them. Read More »

Note: The answer to yesterday’s contest, Angie’s favorite movie, was Synecdoche, New York. The winners were Vanessa S from Arizona and Anant P from Vancouver.

All this week you have a chance to win one of 10 copies of Scott Campbell‘s latest book, The Great Showdowns. It’s a collection of Campbell’s distinctive, awesome art depicting some of the greatest conflicts in movie history. (As seen above.) We at /Film have been writing about Showdowns for years, most recently for Campbell’s second full gallery show. So, to commemorate and give away the new book, we teamed up with Campbell to do something very special.

Each day this week, we’ve been world premiering a brand new, never before seen showdown. Each showdown is based on the favorite movie of one of five /Film writers: Russ Fischer and, of course, Peter Sciretta. (We already did mine as well as David‘s and Angie‘s.) You’ll have one day to look at the showdown, read our explaination why it’s our favorite movie of all time, and then e-mail in your guess. Each day, out of those who get it right, two will randomly be selected and sent a free copy of The Great Showdowns by Scott Campbell.

Over the weekend, Mondo opened their fourth gallery show in Austin, Texas and it was without a doubt their biggest yet. The theme was Universal Monsters and it featured not only brand new work by the legendary Drew Struzan, but all new screenprints and art from the likes of Martin Ansin, Kevin Tong, Scott Campbell, Mike Mitchell, JC Richard and others.

We posted a few of the earlier images at this link but, after the jump, check out our favorites from the rest including stunning posters for Frankenstein, The Wolf Man, Bride of Frankenstein and many more. Read More »

If you’ve ever dreamt of seeing your favorite, obscure little movie made into art, odds are Scott Campbell has done it. For several years now, on an almost daily basis, Campbell creates a Great Showdown. The concept is simple. Pick a movie, pick two opposing forces in that movie, and paint it on a small, five inch high canvas. Here on /Film, we’ve been posting them for a while, so you’re likely familiar with Campbell’s style. If not, you can see it in the not-so-obscure Avengers Showdown above.

What began as a small part of larger shows continued to grow until, in 2011, Campbell was able to create a full Showdowns show at Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles. It was a sight to behold. Two walls filled with hundreds of clever, funny, exciting, surprising, insert-adjective-here Showdowns for what seemed to be every single movie imaginable. Since then, Campbell has continued to make Showdowns, has a book coming out, and is about to unveil his second Great Showdowns show, on display September 21 through October 13.

Almost 250 brand new Showdowns from 18 plus months will be at the show and, after the jump, you can check out my twenty favorites, find out how you can visit the show from anywhere in the world and more. Read More »
