Spoke Art is proud to present our sixth annual Wes Anderson art exhibit, “Bad Dads” – a group show of over 70 artists, being held as an exclusive weekend pop-up show at Joseph Gross Gallery in New York City’s vibrant Chelsea arts district.

Bad Dads VI is on view August 7th – 9th, 2015
Joseph Gross Gallery

My contribution to Spoke Art’s “Bad Dads” is inspired by the spirit and setting of Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel. When writing the script for The Grand Budapest Hotel, Wes Anderson and Hugo Guinness were deeply inspired by the writings of the early 20th Century Austrian author Stefan Zweig.

Meditating on The Grand Budapest Hotel, my mind naturally gravitated to Austrian artist Gustav Klimt’s gold and silver metallic palette, composition, and use of pattern. I wanted my art print to have a period Viennese style. Anderson’s character Agatha strikes a Klimtische pose adorned in gold and silver ink, discreetly holding the hotel’s concierge Monsieur Gustav H.’s prison-break tools behind her back. Agatha is set against the meticulously recreated period wallpaper pattern from her bedroom.

“Bad Dads” began six years ago as a pop-up exhibition curated by gallery owner Ken Harman and has now blossomed through the years into a highly anticipated, memorable, and often costumed art event. Gaining international recognition, the exhibition has evolved along with Anderson’s eight feature films (as well as numerous shorts and commercial features) giving each and every artist a well of inspiration to draw from.

Comprised of original painting and sculpture as well as a multitude of limited edition prints, “Bad Dads VI” is a wide-ranging display of artistry from all over the world. Exhibiting a host of different styles and talents, each artist approaches their work with the same meticulous detail that Anderson approaches his. Drawing upon the stylized world that Anderson has set forth, each artist was free to choose their own film for subject matter, resulting in a spectacular range of character portraits, highly detailed environments and iconic themes and motifs, prominent in each of Anderson’s films.

Spoke Art and Trailers from Hell is proud to announce a very special double feature screening of the 1956 and 1978 versions of Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

Join Spoke Art this Friday night, April 10th, at the Roxie Theater in San Francisco for these two seminal films, along with a very special Q&A session with the director of the 1978 version, Philip Kaufman, moderated by Sam Hamm.

As a special bonus, Spoke Art will also be offering two brand new limited edition prints by Chuck Sperry (pictured above) and David Moscati, available for purchase during the intermission.

“I wanted to articulate the feeling of alienation in this great city that most San Franciscans have been struggling with over the last few years, and Philip Kaufman’s brilliant film has given me the vehicle to express what’s on everybody’s mind in poster form.” – Sperry
