Artist Henning M. Lederer has once again brought to life a collection of vintage book covers from the ‘60s and ‘70s by transforming their abstract designs into funky animations.
In the world of pop culture art, one artist gets fans salivating like none other. His name is Tyler Stout, and though Stout doesn’t release as many movie posters as he used to, he has a confirmed fondness for stop-motion, Wes Anderson, animal movies.
Magic: The Gathering is home to a world—or rather worlds—of fantastical characters, especially the Planeswalkers, the legendary figures that venture across the multiple planes of reality to summon magical creatures and do battle. This great new art collection from Gallery 1988 celebrates these mighty mages in true…
For a decade now, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has given us a gorgeous world of costumed superheroes—moments and shots we’re still talking about all these years later. Now, you’re going to be able to hang them on your wall and remember them in a far more classy manner.
If made today, the Raiders of the Lost Ark scene with Major Toht’s grisly demise would undoubtedly be created using a digital stunt double and complex CG fluid simulations. But in the early ‘80s, old-school practical effects were still a Hollywood staple, and using crayons, sculptor Steven Richter demonstrates just…
A painting made by an artificial intelligence program sold at Christie’s in New York auction on Thursday for $432,500—far more than the estimated $7,000 to $10,000.
Few people capture a science fiction scene quite like artist Kilian Eng, and rarely has that been illustrated better than his latest art piece.
The creators of the world’s first 3D-printed steel bridge, a 40-foot stainless steel structure titled simply “The Bridge” that looks tantalizingly otherworldly thanks to its unique construction methods, say it is now ready for installation in Amsterdam following its ongoing week on show at the Dutch Design Week from…
A single frame from every movie you watch, in meticulous detail. That’s the mission of art blog Design and a Movie, which makes fantastic art from the simple joy of viewership.
Aladdin just got a whole hell of a lot darker.
The best kind pop culture art isn’t obvious. It’s subtle, winks its eye, and takes a certain amount of knowledge to understand. “Product Placement,” the latest art exhibit at Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles, is all that and then some.
When you think of characters like Shrek, Thanos, Pikachu, or Hellboy, what’s the first thing you think of? How brightly colored they are, of course! So it’s almost a no-brainer for an artist to take various characters with matching colors and put them together in one work.
Tamagotchi toys were less about simulating the fun of having a pet, and more about the stresses of keeping your pixelated responsibility alive for as long as possible. I’m still no good at it, and presumably neither is Dmitry Morozov, because he built a machine that automatically cares for a Tamagotchi’s every need, …
In pop culture, even unrelated characters can have something significant in common. They’re both clowns. They’re both purple. They’re both cyborgs. And that middle ground is where artist Alex Solis likes to play.
A framed canvas version of Girl with Balloon by Banksy, the pseudonymous street artist whose true identity remains unknown despite the best efforts of researchers and journalists alike, just sold at London auction house Sotheby’s for at least $1.1 million.

Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia, and Darth Vader are, obviously, the stars of Star Wars. But one important “cast member” that rarely gets mentioned along with those characters is the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy: the Millennium Falcon.
A single frame from a film can often be a work of art. They should be displayed as such.
What, you thought that after his coronation, the legendary Strider himself would give up on the occasional hunt?
Corals are some of the most stunning organisms to have graced the planet, but they’re almost incredibly threatened. Now, an artist has re-created their bright colors and squiggly formations in a manner that’s ominously appropriate for the 21st century: with plastic garbage.
Imagine hopping onto the New York City subway and seeing it packed with Christmas Island geckos or Burmese roofed turtles. This would never happen, obviously. The Christmas Island gecko is actually extinct in the wild, and the Burmese roofed turtle is endangered.
