Mondo Gallery are thrilled to announce their final gallery show of the year, a new one-week poster exhibit highlighting iconic Nickelodeon properties including gorgeous prints inspired by The Ren & Stimpy Show, SpongeBob SquarePants, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Rocko’s Modern Life, Aaahh!!! Real Monsters and Avatar: The Last Airbender! The awesome line-up of artists includes Florian Bertmer, Dave Perillo, Francesco Francavilla, Rosemary Valero-O’Connell, Sachin Teng, Ciro Nieli, Sara Kipin and Janice Chu.
The opening reception, free and open to the public, will be held on Friday, December 9, from 7:00 – 10:00pm at the Mondo Gallery in Austin, TX (4115 Guadalupe St). The show will run through Saturday, December 17.
Mondo Creative Director Mitch Putnam said "Nickelodeon was a huge part of my childhood. It represented everything cool and rebellious, and parents didn't know anything about it. We worked with a number of great artists to pay homage to some of the channel's most influential programming. We hope you have as much fun seeing it as we had making it."
As a teaser for the show, Mondo’s revealed three of the prints that will be on display from artists Dave Perillo, Florian Bertmer and Sachin Teng. There’s no word on whether or not any of these prints will be made available to the public, but Mondo has made a habit of releasing a limited number of pieces from its art shows to the wider masses.
"Thrilled to be part of the Nickelodeon show with Mondo. I grew up watching Nickelodeon when my family first got cable in the early ‘80s, with shows like Pinwheel and You Can't Do That on Television. Always wanted to get slimed for saying 'I don't know?' or food poisoning from Barth's Burgery," said artist Dave Perillo.
In addition to Mondo's usual Friday-night opening, they are also very excited to host a special Family Day on Saturday, December 10, from 10am – NOON, featuring a Slime Building Workshop with Mad Science of Austin, face painting, photo booth, coffee and donuts, and more!
