Gallery1988 - Crazy 4 Cult NYC!

This Thursday is the opening to Gallery 1988 Crazy 4 Cult exhibit at NYC! Yup usually the show is hosted at their gallery in LA, but this year they decided to mix it up and show the exhibit on the east coast in NYC. Here's the details:

Crazy 4 Cult NYC - Annual Cult Movie Art Show
Gallery1988 NYC Pop-up Store
64 Gansevoort St, NY, NY 10014

Opening Reception: Thursday, Aug 9th from 6-9pm
Exhibit Showing August 9th - September 1st, 2012

With this show I always have a hard time narrowing it down to a movie to pay homage to, but I've been in love with the Monty Python folks for a while (particularly their Flying Circus tv series). From the silly walks, to memorable quotes this group of actors are awesome. So I decided to create a painting based on their characters from the Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Finding a holy grail is hard work and I thought they would have a little party to celebrate after the quest was completed.
