There are few things we love more than art prints released from Mondo and Cyclops Print Works but one of those things is Disney. So the fact that these powerhouses are teaming up for another art show is something worth celebrating with end-of-your-day-at-Disneyland fireworks. And the fact that we get to debut two pieces from that art show -- exclusively for you guys -- well, that makes us even happier.
"Never Grow Up," a collaboration between our friends at Mondo, Cyclops Print Works, and Oh My Disney, opens in Austin this Friday. (Quite frankly, if there aren't people already lined up down the street by now, I'd be surprised. You should have seen the line ahead of the last Disney/Mondo collaboration back at SXSW a few years ago.) Per the official press release: The opening night reception will be held Friday, April 28 from 3:00 - 10:00pm, followed by a special "Mondo Clubhouse" Kids Party on Saturday, April 29, from 10am - Noon featuring Disney-inspired treats, face painting, photo booth, and other fun activities! Following these events, the show will run during regular gallery hours through May 13. Mondo Gallery is located at 4115 Guadalupe Street in Austin, TX.
The two pieces Moviefone is debuting today are astounding -- one is by Nico Delort and is themed to the climactic final confrontation in "The Little Mermaid" (big monster Ursula is barely represented in officially licensed merchandise so this is a big thrill) and the other is a lovely piece by Tegan White (who has become one of my favorite artists in recent years) themed to "The Fox and the Hound." And this is the tip of the proverbial iceberg when it comes to the artists that Mondo and Cyclops Print Works have corralled for this new show. It's going to be huge.Mondo X Cyclops Print Works Print #15: The Little Mermaid by Nico Delort
