Back in 2014, artists Kevin Tong and Tom Whalen created Info•Rama, a place where artwork and infographics came together in a spectacular and informative way. Info•Rama has focused on the realms of science, technology, animals and geography, but now they’re bringing pop culture into the mix for a new Mondo gallery show.
Appropriately titled Info•Rama, the new gallery show also brings in artist Matt Taylor for illustrated infographics related to your favorite characters from film, television and comics such as Back to the Future, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Avengers, Star Wars and much more. Check out a few of the pieces from the Mondo Info•Rama show after the jump. Read More »

I always wanted the Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots and a Mattel Overboard from Back to the Future Part II and childhood me would probably be shocked at which one of those officially released Mattel products future-Peter ended up owning.
A new art show will be opening up at Gallery 1988 next week called Mattel: A Tribute To 70 Years Of Toys.
