In a traditional sense, art is all about being displayed at a gallery. The art we feature here on /Film, however, is far from traditional. It’s bold, bright and usually pop culture themed. That kind of stuff has no place in a gallery. Or does it? Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles regularly hosts pop culture themed art shows and occasionally gives some of those artists their own show. Spoke Art in San Francisco, CA has followed suit with several pop culture themed shows of their own and, later this week, will showcase one the movements most prolific artists.
