Mondo Gallery Presents: 80 Years of Batman Show

The Dark Knight returns to the Mondo Gallery this May with a brand new show eight decades in the making! The “80 Years of Batman” gallery show will celebrate the history of the caped crusader, along with his allies and infamous rogue gallery of villains, with 18 classic, iconic and fan-favorite Batman comic book cover images produced as screenprinted posters.

Opening night for “80 Years of Batman” will be held Friday, May 17 from 7 – 10PM, and the show will run through May 25 during regular gallery hours (12PM – 6PM, Tuesday to Saturday). Mondo Gallery is located at 4115 Guadalupe St., Austin, TX.

“For most of my life I’ve been enamored with Batman. His rogues. His world. His look. It’s just about as perfect as you can get,” says Eric Garza, Mondo Creative Director. “It wasn’t until I was a bit older that I became enthralled with the artists who have lent their talents to drawing old Bats. From campy pulp detective to hardened Dark Knight, so many brilliant artists have added to the allure and majesty of the Caped Crusader. To celebrate 80 monumental years and the incredible comics legacy of the Batman, we’ve mined the Batcave for our favorite and most iconic Batman comic book covers. We are proud to share them with the world as beautifully produced screenprinted posters. Long live the Bat.”

Take a look at a selection of “80 Years of Batman” screenprinted posters:

We’ve all had our imagination stirred by Disney in one form or another in the work we do — whether it’s to design better, dig deeper for inspiration, or just add more heart. With this in mind, we couldn’t be more proud of what we’re bringing to both Disney and Mondo fans alike. From our pins and tiki mugs, as well as other fun items down the line, we’re taking our queue from Walt himself — ‘If you can dream it, you can do it.’”

Mondo Gallery Announces The Art of Laurent Durieux Part Two Opening On November 9th

Mondo Gallery has announced The Art of Laurent Duriex Part Two opening on November 9, 2018.

Laurent Durieux is a celebrated illustrator and graphic artist from Brussels, who is responsible for some of Mondo’s most memorable works of pop art, including a 2013 poster of Jaws.

Durieux had this to say about the upcoming show:

“I’m pretty sure people are expecting me to raise the bar a little higher than for my first 2014 solo exhibition at Mondo,” Durieux stated. “I don’t know if I succeeded in doing that but I did my very best to hopefully meet those expectations. Cherry on top, I also had the immense honor to have been able to work on some of the best properties in popular culture, some of which have only been made available for me, which is not only very humbling but also an amazing sign of confidence in my artistry. I truly can’t wait for everyone to see this 7 months labor of love.”

The opening reception, free and open to the public, will be held on Friday, November 9 from 7:00 – 10:00pm at the Mondo Gallery in Austin, TX (4115 Guadalupe St). The show will run through Saturday, November 17.

Mondo Gallery Presents: Francesco Francavilla’s Schermoscuro

Mondo is excited to announce that they’ll be hosting a special one-weekend gallery show featuring the horror-themed original drawings of Francesco Francavilla! The opening reception will be on Friday, October 26 from 7:00 – 10:00 PM. The show will run through Sunday, October 28.

“Horror is a huge passion of mine. For that reason, every year I like to get in the Halloween mood by drawing tributes to some of my favorite horror movies or subjects, some more famous and some less known,” said artist Francesco Francavilla. “When Mondo invited me to put together another gallery show it was a no brainer. I’ve always wanted to do a horror-themed show and the idea to have all these originals celebrating the dark and macabre framed on the Mondo gallery walls and just in time for Halloween was just too good to pass up. Regarding the name for the show, I titled it Schermoscuro, an Italian word I made up from Schermo and Scuro which means literally Dark Screen – as in horror movies – since most of my work in the show, for the original art, is in black and white.”

Mondo Creative Director Mitch Putnam said, “Francesco has been working on a large collection of horror-themed drawings for quite a while now, and we’re honored that he’s chosen the Mondo gallery to share them with the world. If you’re into horror films and the iconography associated with them, this show is for you.” 

Mondo Gallery is located at 4115 Guadalupe St., Austin, TX 78751. This show is FREE and open to the public.
