Artists Vance Kelly and Kevin M. Wilson (also known as Ape Meets Girl) are teaming up for “Easter Eggs” – which, you guessed it, is a show wholly made up of artwork that is filled with Easter eggs.
So, for example, here’s Kelly’s sci-fi cantina piece. Can you name all the aliens?
That poster, along with a ton from various other genres, will first be on sale at 7:00PM local time on March 21 at the Hero Complex Gallery in Los Angeles, CA. The art will then go online the next morning on the Hero Complex website.
If the concept looks a bit familiar, that’s because it was partially inspired by Wilson’s wildly popular Gremlins poster, which was done in a similar style a few months back.
When Randall picked up Gizmo from the antique store in Gremlins, obviously the Mogwai was the standout selection. That may not be the case, however, for this Gremlins poster, which turns that store into a pop culture cornucopia.Read more
And good news: Additional “artist proof” copies of that long-sold out poster will be on sale at the show, so if you missed it before and happen to be in the area, you can finally grab one.
