A new cult painting is done! This one is for the 5th Annual Crazy 4 Cult show at the Gallery 1988 Melrose location. They’ve put on four previous amazing Cult shows and this one looks to be the best one yet. As always, I’m super honored to be included in the roster, and I’m pretty pleased with what I contributed.
The painting is based off a relatively newer movie: Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. I guess we’ll have to let historians decide if it ultimately can live up to its early “cult” status. I immediately fell in love with this flick, as it so cries out to so many video games that I cherished in my youth. Excellently well done, I encourage a rental today, especially if you’re a fellow child of the 80s.
Ink and acrylic on paper, mounted to wood panel, resined.
14.5″ x 14.5″ (2011)
The opening reception will be Friday, July 8th, from 7 to 11PM. I’ll be there to say hello, ramble about art and pop culture and pose terribly for photos if you want. My buddy Andrew Wilson‘s amazing digital painting was featured for the card. Go check out his work right now! Full show details below.
This year’s show will also coincide with the release of a Crazy 4 Cult book! The book is entitled Crazy 4 Cult: Cult Movie Art and has already been picking up quite a bit of press, and I’m honored to be included in it’s pages. There will be an official signing, Sunday July 10th, at noon at the G1988 Melrose location. I’ll be there to mar up your fresh and clean book, if you so desire. Here’s the full scoop:
