Gallery 1988 Announce The Next In Their ‘Ghostbusters’ 30th Anniversay Online Releases, “They’re Here To Save The World” By Joshua Budich

Ever since Gallery 1988 announced back in January that they would be doing a Ghostbusters touring gallery celebrating the movies 30th anniversary, we have been excited to see each and every piece produced for the shows. The tour kicked off in New York on April the 19th before moving to L.A on May the 17th and opens in Chicago this Friday night at Rotofugi, 7pm while 10pm. Tomorrow Gallery 1988 continue with their series of online releases with a piece by Joshua Buddich, easily one of the best of the show.

Joshua Budich, one of the most humble and talented artists to emerge over the past couple of years, has produced this fantastic piece

“They’re Here To Save The World” By Joshua Budich

A little while ago, Joshua was kind enough to take the time to answer a few of our questions on the piece, which impressively comes with full likeness rights by each of the key actors including the sadly departed Harold Ramis.

How did you feel when Gallery 1988 asked you to work on a Ghostbusters piece?

Ghostbusters has always been one of my favorite, and most memorable movie experiences of my childhood. I remember getting the “nod” from my parents, after they had pre-screened Ghostbusters for any questionable content, too racy or frightening for my virgin eyes. Then getting to stay up late to watch it! So, when 88 asked me to participate in this show, I of course jumped at the chance.

Your artwork is applauded and loved by fans for the character likeness and composition, how do you decide what your posters should include?

I knew going into this project that obtaining likeness sign-off from any of the actors I portrayed in the print would be a challenge. So, I had to let the composition dictate who to include, and who unfortunately had to be cut. I do this little exercise every time I create a character-based piece like this. For me, the print has to tell a story. Some parts of the film, although extremely memorable, have to be taken out.

Last year was a great one for you, where would you like this year to take you with your artwork?

Thanks so much! This year, I promised myself more personal projects. Opportunities to take more time with my work, and to reinvigorate my love for the process of creating these pieces.

 

The print will be released tomorrow, Thursday the 19th of June at 9am PT/ Noon ET at Gallery 1988’s dedicated Ghostbusters 30th website and make sure you follow them on Twitter and Facebook, too!

Another fantastic piece created for the New York leg of the show, which opens April 119th and runs until April 26th at 69 Leonard Street, between Church and Broadway, is by Anthony Petrie and features a brilliantly detailed map of New York forming the shape of the ever familiar Proton pack.

Oh My Disney and Mondo Present: Nothing’s Impossible! A Gallery Event Celebrating Classic & Contemporary Disney Films at South by Southwest UPDATE Olly Moss Now Onboard!

Mondo have been releasing some excellent Disney screen prints for a while now. Notable pieces are Tom Whalen’s Toy Story and The Little Mermaid. It only seems natural then that Mondo should dedicate a whole show to Disney movies.

Well, that time is now! Mondo have partnered with Disney’s “Oh My Disney” blog to unveil “Nothing’s Impossible,” a gallery event at this year’s South by Southwest Film Festival, from March 7 – March 11, 2014. The gallery will open to the public on March 7 from 3:00-10:00 p.m. with regular hours to follow for the show’s duration.

The line up is exciting, too. Including Tom Whalen, Aaron Horkey, Phantom City Creative, Jason Edmiston, Martin Ansin, Jeff Soto, Jason Edmiston, Mike Mitchell, Ken Taylor, Rich Kelly and many more, ‘Nothing’s Impossible’ will be a unique gallery as far as most Mondo galleries go, with multiple films by multiple artists.
I do hope we get pieces for Robin Hood and The Lion King

In the meantime we have this excellent preview of Ken Taylor’s offering for Alice In Wonderland

Over on the Mondo Blog, CEO Justin Ishmael said “Disney has a special way of bringing out the magic in all of us and we’re very excited to bring that feeling to Austin at this year’s gallery event,” “Having worked with Oh My Disney over the last year, we know the site celebrates reinventing timeless stories and we hope our work sparks the imagination of both Disney and Mondo fans.”

One suprising omission from the show card was Olly Moss. It had been rumoured for a while that he had put together a Disney print and Olly has now confirmed via Twitter that he WILL be taking part in Mondo and Oh My Disney’s “Nothing’s Impossible” Disney Gallery at South by Southwest.

Last night he also posted a tease of his piece over on Instagram. It doesn’t take Basil, the great mouse detective to figure out which film it’s for.

Oh My Disney and Mondo will release posters digitally every week leading up to the gallery’s opening on March 7th.

Spoke Art give an enticing preview of their January exhibition, “The 3rd Annual Supersonic Electronic Invitational.”

January is no exception and see’s Spoke Art presenting the Third Annual Supersonic Invitational, a group show dedicated to highlighting emerging as well as established artists in the New Contemporary art movement. The show itself will open on Thursday, January 9th. 6pm-10pm  with artists in attendance at the Spoke Art Gallery, 816 Sutter St, San Francisco and will run daily from January 10th until the 25th.

The show will see contributions from an impressive 41 artists who have been chosen for their “diverse ways of expressing similar reflections of life in the second decade of the 21st century”.

In a press release earlier today, “Supersonic Electronic” curator  Zach Tutor described the show and working with Spoke Art as such;

“I see Supersonic and Spoke Art as the seeds and hopefully roots of this burgeoning movement as Supersonic is a source of this aesthetic inspiration for many artists around the world and seeks to chronicle, as well as unify, the styles of this generation’s work.

Thanks to Spoke Art the yearly show has become a platform to showcase the best of these talented artists in a physical space furthering what these artists are defining. The gallery is still the most important space for an artist and these artist’s works which are mostly viewed on screens around the world are given, in a sense, a physical blog post.

For me there is much beauty in seeing an artists work from the distance of a screen and finally having the chance to view it in person. It’s like knowing of a treasure’s existence, following the map and then digging it up, basking in the light of the gold.”

The list of contributing artists certainly is impressive and divers. Spoke Art describe the selection as existing “in a world with instant access to unlimited aesthetic inspiration resulting in a very multifaceted generation of artists whose work displays and contains an extraordinary amount of influences. This access to all forms of art and media has shaped their creative output greatly and has pushed art forward to an exciting new era that is only just beginning to be recognizable.”
