So very excited about this show.
As you may or may not know, Mondo Gallery is known for pop culture and movie posters. One of the biggest players in the pop culture scene, they’ve switched it up for this new show. “Originals: A Fine Art Show” prohibits pop culture of any kind, and instead celebrates the unique original works made by some top notch artists, with content 100% new original content, generated for this show. From Mondo themselves:
We’re doing something unprecedented for our next event, “Originals: A Fine Art Show.” Our gallery has celebrated Disney characters, Marvel superheroes, Universal Monsters, Game of Thrones, Cinematic Villains, Batman, and now we turn to the artists themselves for inspiration, unleashed to produce original works of art and screen prints with complete artistic freedom.
I’m thrilled to be showing alongside such an incredible roster of talent, many of whom I had the pleasure of meeting at MondoCon and the now infamous “Camp Deathslide” experience, post-con. I had a ton of fun working on my piece for the show: “Blister.” It’s part of a new push for the new year (starting a little early) to try and raise the level of the work I make. There was an abundance of inspiration from MondoCon, and getting to meet and hang out with some of the hardest working artists in the industry has pushed me to try and up my game. This piece is also the first of a new direction of matt-varnished works in which I’ve decided to stop resining the pieces I make. From now on, save for a select few projects, I will be no longer poisoning myself with the toxic fumes and uncertainty of a resin flood.
“Originals: A Fine Art Show” will open on Friday, November 13 and run until Saturday, December 5 at the Mondo Gallery in Austin, TX. Full details down below. Wish I could be at this one in person, if you’re in the Austin area, this isn’t one to be missed! Enjoy!
