On the opposite side of the gallery will be presented “Weapon of Choice Phase 2!” The Weapon of Choice show in January proved to be such a huge hit that Hero Complex Gallery wanted to exhibit the show to a whole new audience and will be presenting all new art from artists who wanted to take a stab at this sweeping eclectic theme.

MM-DEERHUNTER-ART[1]BLURPPY got a chance to talk to one of the show’s contributing artists, Midnight Marauder and here is what he had to say about his spectacular print for The Deer Hunter. (seen above)

“I am deeply proud to have been asked to Participate in this Amazing show with some truly remarkable artists and designers. and to work on one of my favorite films of all time. The Deer Hunter encapsulates everything that I adore in Cinema. Cimino’s Intimate Epic about Family, Brotherhood and War is the ultimate 70’s film. And I could not see myself picking any other film from the list of Best picture favorites.  The Russian Roulette scene is one of the greatest gifts to cinema ever realized.I wanted to give the print a grittiness similar to the original Italian Print that was originally released back in 1978.” 

Check out some of the amazing art that will be at the show.  If you get to go, please don’t rub it in.  I’m bummed I can’t make it.
