Cool Stuff: Jason Edmiston Tackles Classic Movie Villains At Mondo Gallery

Every time you see a piece of art by Jason Edmiston, it takes a second to process. You have to look closely and ask, "Am I looking at a photo or is this a painting?" The next question is whether or not you have enough money to buy it.

Edmiston is the man behind the next solo show at the Mondo Gallery in Austin, Texas. It's called A Rogues Gallery. The Toronto-based artist has done several brand new acrylic paintings immortalizing some of the biggest and baddest villains in cinema history. Characters from films like Ghostbusters, RoboCop, Predator, Terminator, Aliens, Texas Chainsaw Massacre and they'll all be on display starting Friday August 23. Check out a sampling below.

Jason Edmiston's A Rogue's Gallery opens August 23 from 7-10 p.m. at 4115 Guadalupe St. Austin TX. It'll remain on display through September 14. For more information, visit

Here's a small sampling of work in the show. Some of these will be available as screenprints and most of the original paintings will be for sale, too.

Most of these posters and paintings will only be on sale at the gallery in Austin. Any leftovers will eventually go on sale online. Follow @MondoNews for that random announcement.
