Hey look, it’s another sweet show from the Bottleneck Art Gallery in Brooklyn! “It Came From 1984” is a tribute to all the amazing movies that came out that year, from Ghostbusters to Gremlins to The Terminator. It features a variety of artists and pieces, curated by Chogrin. The gallery will have an online store where you can buy pieces, as well as visiting the gallery in person to see everything live! It opens today, Friday Feb. 7th, from 7-10pm. The gallery also has regular hours if you can’t make it to the opening. Check out a few pieces below! (Also, full disclosure, I have one piece in the show. But it’s nothing compared to the work everyone else has contributed — holy crap!) Read more…

Watch out Daft Punk, your rusty, built-from-scrap arch-nemesis is here, and he’s made from GameBoy parts. THUNDERBOX had a cool art show going on and one of the standout pieces was a life-size and wearable mask made from a GameBoy and other electronics. Along with that there was also a GameBoy-inspired jacket, in which you are the cartridge. The whole combination of fashion and gaming typically isn’t too “savvy,” but THUNDERBOX has some really fantastic and creative stuff, so take a look at more images below of the show, and then visit their site to get some THUNDERBOX in your life.

Tons of fantastic pieces are on display and for sale, but the one that caught my eye was the X-Ray Trooper. It’s a really neat setup, it’s even displayed on a lightbox for full authenticity! It makes me strangely happy to know that there is a LEGO Star Wars gallery on display in this world. Read more…
