MONDO Announces “Harsh Majical” A Gallery Show By “We Buy Your Kids” Opening On August 29, 2014

WBYK_HarshMajical_digital1000px

MONDO welcomes back the Australian artist duo, We Buy Your Kids, for the next gallery show, “Harsh Majical.” The show will run from August 29th through September 15th. The opening reception will be Friday, August 29th from 7 –10pm at the Mondo Gallery, located at 4115 Guadalupe St. in Austin, TX. Sonny Day and Biddy Maroney, the faces behind Sydney-based We Buy Your Kids, are known for their colorful, off-beat design style. They combine hand-made and digital techniques to create their work, often experimenting with color, shape and texture. Their influences include a shared love of comic books, skateboarding, music and film.

The show’s title, “Harsh Majical,” came from a direct English translation of a Chinese description of WBYK’s work. “We felt it might sum up the final outcome, but more importantly describes the fun we’ve had working on this collection.” It will include prints from films previously tackled by Mondo artists, such as Alien and The Fly, but will also introduce some new titles such as White Men Can’t Jump and Thrashin’.

In addition to creating prints for Mondo’s online store, this will be the second gallery show featuring art from the talented duo. Their first, entitled “Tina’s Mom’s Boyfriend” (which opened in December of 2012), was a huge success and “Harsh Majical” is expected to be equally bizarre and awesome.

James White’s Solo Exhibition Celscapes To Open At Bottleneck Gallery On August 29, 2014

Screen_shot_2014-07-03_at_4.05.18_PM_grande

Please join Bottleneck Gallery on Friday, August 29, 2014, as they open James White (Signalnoise)’s solo exhibition, Celscapes.

Here is how the artist describes the exhibit:

“Being a child of the 1980s, Saturday mornings were spent in front of the television with a bowl of cereal watching all of my favourite cartoons. What always struck me about those classic shows, such as Spider-man, Masters of the Universe, Scooby-Doo and the Superfriends were the beautifully hand-painted backgrounds. Sadly, that form of animation has faded away. Celscapes is a celebration of those classic painted backgrounds, depicting scenes from films, television and cartoons.”

The opening reception will take place from 7pm-10pm. Admission and drinks are free.

Phone Booth Gallery Announces Kevin Tong & Tom Whalen: Info-Rama Art Show Opening On August 23, 2014

info_rama_logo_fnl_bw

Phone Booth Gallery is proud to present, “Info-Rama,” an exhibition of intricate screen-printed infographics crafted by artists Tom Whalen and Kevin Tong. The exhibition opens with an all-ages reception on Saturday, August 23rd, from 7-10pm, at Phone Booth Gallery’s exhibition space at 2533 East Broadway, Long Beach, CA 90803. “Info-Rama” remains on view through September 17th at the gallery and online at www.phoneboothgallery.com.

Infographics have a history that stretches back centuries. French engineer Charles Minard is credited with starting the trend in the early 1800s, making drawings detailing Napoleon’s invasions and pie charts tracking cattle-consumption. With “Info•Rama,” intentionally scheduled to coincide with the start of the school year, Kevin and Tom endeavored to design images that simultaneously functioned as art and resources and could potentially find homes on classroom walls. The screen-printing process used to make each one gives these objects a vividness and tactility that distinguishes them from most educational posters.

For the show, Tong, an illustrator whose work often ventures into the realm of fantasy, has designed a multi-part, brightly colored guide to human anatomy. He also created a fiery, futuristic-looking infographic explaining the life and legacy of forward-thinking engineer Nikola Tesla, after whom Tesla Motors is named. His brief illustrated history of the USS Los Angeles, the rigid Zeppelin airship built by the U.S. Navy in 1924, is noir-like, all black, white and gray.

Whalen, an artist who frequently re-interprets vintage design motifs in his work, has imbued his series of infographics with an old-fashioned whimsy. His guide to the first transcontinental railroad uses fonts reminiscent of Wild West signage, and the mountains looming in the background behind the train cars are simple and stylized. His brief explanation of the life and habits of the stegosaurus is similarly stylized, with the dinosaur pictured at center and colored purple and orange. Whalen plays with size and shape in each of his infographics, using a banner-like orientation for his guides to the Octopus and the Samurai but using horizontal orientations and standard rectangles as well.

Any educator who purchases a print from the show will receive a discount, but the information Tong and Whalen artfully present should appeal to anyone curious about how the world works, whether they have students to teach or not.
