This past weekend Gallery 1988 unveiled a whole new show titled Versus. As you might have guessed, the show features pieces that depict some of the biggest rivalries in film, television and video games.

But in the end, the two artists with a similar style and a penchant for pop culture teamed up to deliver some fantastic and affordable artwork featuring some of your favorite characters. Read More »

Alphabitz Art Show

Two of our favorite pop culture artists working today are undoubtedly Tom Whalen and Dave Perillo. We’ve featured their work when they’ve had shows together, and we’ve even featured them when they tackle two different animated shows for adults. Now they’re back for another team show, this time delivering the ABCs of pop culture in a new show called Alphabitz.

Alphabitz does exactly what you would expect it to by having Tom Whalen and Dave Perillo create pop culture pieces inspired by the alphabet. For example, there’s P for Predator, V for Voltron, B for BB-8 and much more. But beyond having these familiar characters from pop culture representing a letter, what they’re doing is also indicative of the letter chosen, which makes for some goofy scenarios, like Freddy Krueger filing his nails in France, or Dracula driving Miss Daisy in a Dodge.

Check out pieces from the Alphabitz art show below, including some debut images given exclusively to /Film. Read More »

Tom Whalen Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory Print

This year doesn’t mark a special anniversary for Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, but that doesn’t mean the 1971 musical adaptation of Roald Dahl‘s classic book doesn’t deserve to be celebrated, and that’s exactly what Dark Hall Mansion is doing with their latest limited edition fine art print release.

Tom Whalen, one of our favorite artists, has created a stunning Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Facotry print for Dark Hall Mansion to release, and it even has three variants, two of which will make you feel like you’ve won a trip to Willy Wonka’s factory and a lifetime supply of chocolate. If you don’t believe me, check out the Tom Whalen Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory print below and see how incredible this piece looks. Read More »
