More Previews: “Crazy 4 Cult 3D” @ Gallery 1988 (LA) Greg Simkins & Amy Sol collab piece

Here is the amazing and unprecedented collaboration piece between Amy Sol and Greg “Craola” Simkins for this year’s Crazy 4 Cult show at Gallery 1988 (LA). This tribute to “The Neverending Story” is one of the many stunning pieces for this annual exhibition celebrating cult movies. Opening this Thursday night, July 16th (7 - 10pm), attendees will do well for themselves to get there early as lines will be long.

Dave MacDowell takes on Robert Williams
Artist Davie MacDowell will not only put his own spin on cult movie Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory for "Crazy 4 Cult 3-D," but he will also be reinterpreting a classic piece from a low-brow master. Robert Williams first created his painting, "Appetite For Destruction," for the Guns N' Roses album of the same name. But unfortunately his vision was banned, due to what some might call graphic content. Robert's now legendary piece is seen below...

When it came time for "Crazy 4 Cult" Dave MacDowell took aim at both this painting and the Gene Wilder classic, "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory," with his own vision, "Appetite For Veruca."
