Cowabunga, dude! "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle's" Michaelangelo is swinging by Mondo Gallery's infographic-themed art show Info•Rama in Austin, TX. CBR has the exclusive first look at Tom Whalen's "TMNT" poster, which spotlights Michaelangelo as well as Leatherhead, Karai and Krang.
The gallery will also display artwork from Kevin Tong and Matt Taylor, who have created pieces that celebrate pop culture staples like "Star Wars," Batman and the Avengers. Whalen, Tong and Taylor will all be in attendance at the gallery's opening night, which takes place Friday, June 24 from 7 pm - 10 pm. The show itself runs June 24 - July 9.
"Since it launched, the Info•Rama project from Kevin Tong and Tom Whalen has been one of our favorite new developments in the poster world. We were excited to bring their illustrative infographic approach to our film properties, and adding Matt Taylor to the show was an incredible bonus. Sometimes collaborations come easily and feel really natural, and this is a perfect example of that," said Mondo Creative Director Mitch Putnam in a press release.
"Info•Rama, from the beginning has just been so enjoyable because Mitch Putnam, Tom Whalen, and I stumbled upon something that combines all the things we love: art, learning, and working with friends whose art we admire. I've been a big fan of Tom for years and Matt Taylor consistently delivers top notch intelligent work, so there was no question about having him join us. The work they've done for the show is among their finest," added artist Kevin Tong.
