Mondo Gallery Presents: Robert Brandenburg and Craig Drake Exhibit

Mondo, the collectible art division of Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, announces its next gallery show, which runs from September 14 – October 6, featuring both prints and original works of art from Robert Brandenburg and Craig Drake. The gallery opening on September 14 will be from 7:00 – 10:00pm with regular hours to follow for the show’s duration.  The Mondo Gallery is located at 4115 Guadalupe St. in Austin, TX.

Mondo fans may recognize Craig Drake’s style from an original Blade Runner painting of Rachael at the gallery’s sci-fi themed show at SXSW. (Seen below)  “I find Craig Drake’s sharp, sleek portraits very interesting. He created my favorite piece at our inaugural show, which I am proud to have hanging in my house,” said Mondo’s Mitch Putnam.  Drake has delivered stunning works of art for Mondo’s upcoming show, bringing his sleek 80s pop style to characters from Metropolis, Black Swan, Kill Bill and more.

Artist Robert Brandenburg will be reinterpreting classic movie posters by adding embellishments to the original one-sheets for the Mondo show. “If you are in the area, you must come see Robert Brandenburg’s pieces in person. His attention to detail is unmatched,” commented Putnam. His subtle and sometimes not-so-subtle tweaks to iconic art are sublime, adding new meaning to familiar poster art from movies like Deliverance, Manhattan and more.
