Crazy 4 Cult 3D

Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles had a successful art reception last night. Crazy 4 Cult 3D is a third annual show which Gallery 1988, along with filmmakers Kevin Smith and Scott Mosier created this spectacular event. 100 Artist are given an opportunity to reinterpret their favorite classic cult films.

The event was packed with fans, among them were actor Seth Green, and writer/director Michael Dougherty. The walls were filled with artwork from many artists with a variety of talent and styles. From a glance, it was obvious that Edward Scissorhands and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory was an influential film for many artists. To the fans, this event brought back childhood memories and starting group discussions with one another. The theme of this event is definitely interesting, and it was nice to see the interpretation from artist Dan May and Nathan Spoor, whom I have previously blogged. It is always nice to see fresh work from all artists that I admire.
