MONDO presents “The Art of Ken Taylor” for the next gallery show, running from May 30, 2014 through June 21, 2014.  The opening night event will be Friday, May 30, 2014 from 7 – 10pm at the MONDO Gallery, located at 4115 Guadalupe St. in Austin, TX. Artist Ken Taylor will be in attendance.

One of the most sought after artists in music & film, Ken Taylor is responsible for some of the most stunning imagery in Mondo’s archive, often besting the original and undeniably great official artwork for classic films.

“Flying halfway across the world to exhibit my work for this amazing collector niche still blows my mind every day. This is the culmination of many months of hard work and stress (but more importantly, fun), and I can’t wait to show it all,” said Taylor.

The show will include prints for films that Mondo has never previously tackled before, including the two preview pieces for Children of Men & Little Shop of Horrors.
