For those of us that grew up in the late 80’s and 90’s, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles helped define our childhood. Along with other cartoons such as He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, G.I Joe (or Action Force, if like me you are British) and Tranformers, TNMT were a institution. TNMT always felt different. Cooler. Unlike the others, they were a bonifide comic and cartoon series, along with a brilliant movie. They were born from something.
Bottleneck Gallery, those New York based mavericks of pop culture art, will be celebrating the Heroes in a Half Shell with a group show dedicated to the different iterations of the TNMT, “Turtles in Time”. Opening tonight, Friday October 3rd, from 7pm-10pm at 60 Broadway, Brooklyn, NY 11249. The entire exhibition will run until October 26th. Take a look at some of the amazing artwork that will be on display by reading on!
Yep, you read that right, this Friday Bottleneck Gallery will be launch three one-man exhibitions. “Li’l MacGuffins” by 100% Soft, “Figure Eighty” by Russ Moore and “Back From The Drawing Board” by Glen Brogan.
This unprecedented set of shows, by three extremely talented artists, certainly is exciting. We are extremely happy to bring you a series of previews from each of the shows which open this Friday, September 12th, from 7pm until 10pm at Bottleneck Gallery.
I am unashamedly a fan of the movies of Kevin Smith. After watching Mallrats as a teen, I was smitten with the comic and pulp culture references and awkward characters. To me, the dialogue was as colourful as Tarantino’s. Except, you know, dicks and Batman rather than burgers and foot massage. I was impressed by Smith’s dramatic left turn with Red State. It was different yet retained what I enjoyed from a Kevin Smith movie. The characters.
With Kevin Smith’s next movie, Tusk, fast approaching I really wanted to share this wonderful piece by Mark ‘Chilly’ Chilcott. Mark is as much a fan of Smith’s movies as myself and this simple piece is pretty stunning.
Matt Ferguson is a man on a roll! Not only does he have “The World’s Finest Tee” available in our store, this week his “Mighty Mini” for Hero Complex Gallery sold out double quick and tomorrow he has this gorgeous Star Wars inspired triptych available from Bottleneck Gallery!
Inspired by classic scenes from the original trilogy, this set of three prints includes: “You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. We must be cautious”, “There’s a meteorite that hit the ground near here. I want to check it out.” and finally “I feel his presence. He’s come for me. He can feel me when I’m near.” We will leave you to guess which is inspire by which movie. All three will be released Thursday the 4th of September, 12pm eastern, at Bottleneckgallery.com.
This Friday Bottleneck Gallery will be opening up a gallery with one of the most exciting and original concepts I have ever see. And there have been a few. On Friday, August, 29th, Bottleneck Gallery will open James White (Signalnoise)’s solo exhibition, ‘Celscapes’.
A celebration of classic painted backgrounds that we were so used to seeing in t.v shows, for ‘Celscapes’ James White will take on both modern and classic film, t.v and cartoons. We are lucky enough to share a few pieces from the show. Read one for some truly beautiful preview pieces from the show!
As a devoted uncle, there is nothing more heart warming than seeing your nephews and nieces playing dress up, acting as their favourite hero. Andy Fairhurst has tapped into that sentimentality in the cutest possible way with his series, “Superhero Kids”. Last year Andrew left the series teetering at 27 in total, which you can see here. Now, partly down to his disliking of the number 27 and partly down to sheer badgering, Andy has thankfully rounded the series off to 30 with 3 brand new entries in the series! You can see all three below!
It’s always great to see pieces of art based on classic movies interpreted in unique and different ways. Star Wars certainly is a movie that attracts its fair share of but Wales based artist Andy Fairhurst’s upcoming set for Bottleneck Gallery, titled “Planets”, is certainly unique and takes us on an exploration of some of Star Wars most well know locations and characters.

A multimedia event that theVerge.com described as “a cyberpunk love letter in the form of a concept album. Its goal is simple: to craft new works inspired by the world of Blade Runner. To this …end, several musicians, illustrators, and a writer have joined together to create what is essentially a collaborative art project, which will mix up illustration, music, and short stories into one cohesive whole. “It feels to me that the world of LA 2019 lives on independently of the movie now,” says one of the creators, Fredrik Segerfalk. “That’s why we want to go there to look for new moments.”
The opening reception opens on Saturday, May 31st from 7pm-9pm eastern with the first 30 people to attend receiving a free 12 x 6 inch giclee of Kilian Eng’s Owl print.
If can’t make it to the show, Bottleneck Gallery will be holding an online sale on Sunday, June 1st at 12pm eastern on their online store!
