Last Friday I was able to make it out to the opening night of Gallery 1988’s Crazy 4 Cult 5 in LA. First off I need to say that, no, sadly I did not have any art in this show. But I wanted to put this on my site because this show is one of the reasons why I do what i do. My first time experiencing this type of art was at Gallery 1988’s Crazy 4 Cult 2. It basically blew my mind, and it was everything I wanted to paint but didn’t have any motivation to do so. Then I see a collection like this, it instantly lit a fire under my ass to work on stuff that I enjoyed. Instant inspiration. It’s partly responsible for the rampage I have been on for the past few years. I get that it’s not for everybody, but for the few that see some art from a movie that they grew up with, love or quote on a daily basis it’s a real good time. I put up aÂ few pix of some that really kicked my ass. Besides being just creative and funny, there is a real level of talent and expertise in some of these interpretations. If you have never been there, go check it out. This show runs until July 30th. Afterward you can wait 2 hours in line for a hot dog from Pinks across the street. Thanks to Jensen and Katie for having another kick ass show, always a highlight of the summer.
And just because it’s awesome, I thought I would plug their new book that just came out this weekend too. Of course I bought one. And if you dig this kind of stuff it is a must have.
