Gallery 1988’s Crazy 4 Cult gets ‘BIG’

↳ Rollover on the images above to see the print glow in the dark!

Over the past couple years, we’ve had the opportunity to participate in several exciting shows and projects at Gallery 1988.  This year, we were thrilled to participate in what is arguably their marquee exhibition: Crazy 4 Cult.  Crazy 4 Cult is a celebration of cult film through art prints, paintings, sculptures, and a variety of other art pieces.

After creating a list of some of our favorite cult and childhood films, we arrived at Big, which coincidentally was released in 1988.  After re-watching the film, we determined that the iconic scene of Tom Hanks and Robert Loggia performing Heart and Soul on the FAO Schwartz giant piano had to be the focus of our print.  We decided to put our own spin on the point of view, and approached the print with a bird’s eye view of the piano, creating the composition as a diptych with one panel dedicated to each character.

The prints are each 24″ x 9″ and are available both framed and unframed in our store.  There are 5 ink colors, the last of which is a glow-in-the-dark ink that lights up the white keys when viewed in the dark (rollover the images above to see an example).  Detail shots of the prints are below including a photo under a black light.
