Super Science Fair: A Pop Culture Experiment By Tom Whalen & Dave Perillo To Open At The Spoke Art Gallery On November 3, 2016

14045752_10154281764805428_4320814257700254241_n

Spoke Art Gallery is pleased to present Super Science Fair – A Pop Culture Experiment by Tom Whalen and Dave Perillo. Inspired by sci-fi universes from Godzilla to Willy Wonka, Whalen and Perillo have reimagined pop culture staples in their bright, illustrative vector styles. Each nostalgically modern, limited-edition print puts a playful spin on classic favorites.

Both Tom Whalen and Dave Perillo are heavily influenced by their backgrounds in design and typography as well as a mutual love for all things sci-fi and super hero related. Each artists’ work explores the science behind their favorite films and characters from Aliens to Xenomorphs with concise and dynamic compositions. One part mid-century advertisements, a hand full of cult classics and spiced with pop culture inspirations, Whalen and Perillo have brewed up their version of a science fair. New infographic pieces detailing planets from galaxies far, far, away, Pee Wee’s Breakfast Machine, and a spec sheet for the U.S.S. Sulaco will guide you on this science experiment.

Dave Perillo cites Mary Blair, Walt Disney, Jim Henson and Charles Schultz among his key Super Science Fair influences. For Super Science Perillo has created a series of public service announcements, informational pamphlets and guides. Intergalactic communications, how to grow a dinosaur, and time travel through the ages each seamlessly blends sci-fi heroes with a nod to advertising of the 50’s and 60’s.

Tom Whalen lists comic book artists and illustrators such as Todd McFarlane, Steve Ditko, Jack Kirby and Saul Bass as vital inspiration from an early age. Whalen’s latest work spins Reed Richards (Fantastic Four) and Dr. Bowman (2001: A Space Odyssey) as pulp magazine covers. A complete guide to extraordinary beasts details the origin and first sightings for gremlins, wampas and more.

The opening reception will be on Thursday November 3, 2016 from 6-10PM and the exhibit will run until November 26th.

Mondo Gallery Presents Info•Rama Opening On June 24, 2016

Mondo is excited to announce their next gallery show, Info•Rama, featuring infographic film posters from Tom Whalen, Kevin Tong and Matt Taylor that seek to illustrate and illuminate classics like Back to the Future, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Avengers, Star Wars and many more. All three artists will be in attendance for the opening night reception at the Mondo Gallery on Friday, June 24th from 7-10pm.

Founded in 2014 by Kevin Tong and Tom Whalen, Info•Rama has created infographic posters that are meticulously researched and illustrated. Previous examples of beautiful and informative artwork in the realms of science, technology and culture can be found at http://inforamaart.com.

“Since it launched, the Info•Rama project from Kevin Tong and Tom Whalen has been one of our favorite new developments in the poster world. We were excited to bring their illustrative infographic approach to our film properties, and adding Matt Taylor to the show was an incredible bonus. Sometimes collaborations come easily and feel really natural, and this is a perfect example of that,” said Mondo Creative Director Mitch Putnam.

“Info•Rama, from the beginning has just been so enjoyable because Mitch Putnam, Tom Whalen, and I stumbled upon something that combines all the things we love: art, learning, and working with friends whose art we admire. I’ve been a big fan of Tom for years and Matt Taylor consistently delivers top notch intelligent work, so there was no question about having him join us. The work they’ve done for the show is among their finest,” said artist Kevin Tong.
