DKNG Icon Jurassic

Every film has one. A signature prop, set, or location. Something that, in a single image, can represent the entire movie. The design team of Dan Kuhlken and Nathan Goldman, also known as DKNG, call these images “Icons,” and they are the subject of their first ever solo show at Gallery 1988 West in Los Angeles opening Saturday June 14.

The show, called simply Icon, is comprised of 50 pieces featuring iconic places and things from some of your favorite movies and TV shows of all time. Things like Star Wars, Beavis and Butthead, The Shining, Back to the Future, Office Space, Groundhog Day, Arrested Development, Willy Wonka, Jurassic Park, the list goes on and on. Each piece is small – 12 inches square – and is of one thing that sums up an entire movie. And of course, each is done in DKNG’s distinctive bright, geometric yet detailed style.

Below, check out our exclusive reveal of just eight of the 50 pieces you’ll be able to see and purchase in person Saturday at Gallery 1988. Read More »

Gallery 1988 Los Angeles will be holding their fifth annual Crazy 4 Cult art show on July 8th 2011, and we have an exclusive first look at art created by Robert Brandenburg for the show. Brandenburg has a very interesting style, taking pieces of existing art or advertising, and giving is a unique pop culture twist. You’ll see what I mean after the jump with his two Crazy 4 Cult pieces based on the films Donnie Darko and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. We also have a few pieces from Brandenburg’s solo show which will be happening in 2012, which includes takes on War of the Worlds, Toy Story and Winnie The Pooh.

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.

You’ve probably seen Mel Stuart‘s 1971 adaptation of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory starring Gene Wilder more than once. But I bet you haven’t seen the alternate ending that wasn’t used in the final cut of the film. This deleted scene was just uncovered yesterday in the Paramount Pictures achieves. Watch this newly restored piece of cinema history right now, embedded after the jump.
