The Dark Knight Poster Concept By Laurent Durieux

Check out this unused Mondo poster concept by the great Laurent Durieux for The Dark Knight. I love how the artist incorporates the Joker’s profile in Batman’s billowing cape! I would love to see the finished image incorporating Laurent’s painstaking detail. Perhaps someday…

Pulp Fiction Prints By Dave Perillo

Dave Perillo’s latest work of art is inspired by Quentin Tarantino’s critically acclaimed film, “Pulp Fiction” and was created exclusively for the Upper Deck Gallery. Perillo’s 12” x 36” illustration depicts the cast of Pulp Fiction characters in iconic scenes from the movie using the artist’s unique style of bright colors, geometrical patterns and distinctive layouts.

“I was super excited for the opportunity to work on this project for the Upper Deck Gallery, especially since Pulp Fiction is one of my all-time favorite movies. It is such a fantastic story filled with so many unique characters. I love how the movie has a retro quality to it without really specifying when it takes place. My goal was to translate that into the print, hopefully doing it justice.” – Dave Perillo

Regular Edition

Screen printed on heavy card stock and hand numbered to 250 for $59.99


Variant Edition

Limited to just 100 prints. Created in a more subtle color pallet, this print shows the same classic scenes from the film, including the dance sequence at Jack Rabbit Slims and the restaurant robbery scene.  Available for $99.99.

Nicole Gustafsson’s “The Once and Future Weird Kids” To Open At Galery 1988 On January 8, 2016


Join Galery 1988 this Friday Night, January 8, 2016 from 7-9 PM, for their first opening reception of 2016, as they debut the newest body of work from a G1988 favorite, Nicole Gustafsson, at our East location. Her show, entitled “The Once and Future Weird Kids,” will offer new paintings and prints, and patrons attending opening night will also get a free giveaway limited enamel pin, while supplies last. Nicole has created some of the most memorable pieces in the gallery’s history, including her unforgettable recent painting in the Art Awakens campaign for Star Wars. For her new pieces, she once again perfectly employs her pop culture influences into a subtle atmosphere, almost as a hidden Easter egg for those who notice. The work will first be available in-gallery Friday night, then online at gallery1988.com the following afternoon (PT). Nicole will be in attendance at the reception. This show will run until January 23rd.
