THIS SATURDAY NIGHT, Gallery1988 will begin it’s most ambitious, and secretive, project ever. We have teamed up with Sony Pictures to pay tribute to one of the greatest movies of all-time, turning 30 this year: Ghostbusters.
We have produced a once-in-a-lifetime traveling art exhibit that features more than 70 artists creating original paintings, limited edition prints, sculptures and apparel inspired by the classic comedy. It all kicks off properly in New York City THIS SATURDAY NIGHT, from 7-10 PM at 69 Leonard St., near the famous firehouse from the film.
A majority of the artwork will ONLY BE AVAILABLE by attending one of the galleries in-person. A very small allotment of prints has been set aside for each city, with a smaller selection at our final Comic Con stop. This is the ONLY way to purchase this artwork. There will be small surprises at each stop as well.
A commemorative series of special 30th Anniversary screenprints WILL BE AVAILABLE in limited amounts ONLINE, in addition to in-store, at ghostbusters30th.com. These will be released sporadically over the next month. This set consists of prints from Mike Mitchell (poster), Phantom City Creative, Anthony Petrie, Tom Whalen, Tara McPherson, Dan Mumford, Dave Perillo, Lora Zombie, Godmachine, Rich Kelly (select cities), Mark Englert, DKNG and Joshua Budich. When purchasing online, please read terms & conditions CAREFULLY, as combined shipping will be offered.
We also will have very small amounts of collaborative t-shirts from LRG, Johnny Cupcakes, Homage & Rebel8 at each stop.
The New York Ghostbusters gallery opens SATURDAY NIGHT, April 19th, with an opening reception from 7-10 PM. We will be open everyday through April 26th, from 11-7 PM. Our next stop is Gallery1988 (West) in Los Angeles on May 17th.

Aw thanks man,
Ive been meaning to post some WIP pictures. So unlike most of my pieces which are made from a preexisting bust or statue and then modified. With this one I had always had the Robocop head which was a vinyl garage kit you could modify into a wearable helmet, Unfortunately my head is too big so I opted to make it into a bust using pretty much whatever I could find around the house.
The body and base started out as an oatmeal box with a broken baseball bat holding it up.
From there i started sculpting muscle groups out of foil and covering them with plaster of paris strips.
After that I just started covering him in “LA Doll” paper clay
The Base itself is made from a fiberglass planter pot that i cut in half and turned over.
After a bizillion hours spent sanding and then filling the thing up with plaster of paris and a touch of cement for the base he was ready to paint.
i think all and all this was one of the largest and (and most time consuming projects i have ever attempted)
