Dark Hall Mansion, is ‘a labor of love‘ and has been dealing out awesomeness for some time now and this Halloween is no different as they have just announced their latest officially licensed release: DHM’s “Universal Monsters x SHAG” Folio by leading contemporary artist SHAG.
Here is what Dark Hall Mansion had to say about this ambitious project and their continuing collaboration with SHAG: Working with Universal Pictures Group, is proud to offer its one of a kind SHAG thriller, the “Universal Monsters x SHAG” Folio, an exclusive, officially licensed, limited edition 10-Print Folio that any horror collector or SHAG fan will be sure to appreciate.
A singular Folio like no other, SHAG has brought Universal’s legendary Classic Monsters to life in his trademark style, incorporating legends Frankenstein, The Mummy, Dracula, The Wolf Man, Creature from the Black Lagoon, The Invisible Man, and a not to be missed Bride of Frankenstein, all, within a landscape that marries timeless horror films with characters that show us just how cool they were and forever will be.
Artist SHAG has crafted a Folio of 8 stunning individual 18″ x 24″ prints, plus one rather mind bending 2-print splash page panoramic that won’t soon be forgotten. The sheer charm and pathos is at once evocative of Universal’s legendary films while still pure SHAG.
Look for SHAG touches like the painting on the wall of the Frankenstein Monster’s pad, a keen reference to Maria and the purity of a tragically doomed friendship that the Monster reflects on to this day, a too sly Dracula with his brides, a relaxed Boris Karloff as the Mummy, showing just how he might unwind after finally recovering his Scroll of Thoth, maybe the Creature showboating for some poolside gals, or a passionate ladies’ man Wolf Man is more your style, but no matter, because they’re all here!
ALL the Universal Classic Monsters, officially licensed by Universal Pictures, which was simply thrilled to see their legendary characters immersed in a universe that bridges their world with SHAG’s distinctive and highly stylized own.
Each and every print will be individually numbered and signed by SHAG himself, each measuring 18″ x 24″ with full borders and an image area of 14.5″ x 20.5″ and with all prints being individually screen printed. This extraordinary Folio, which will come in its own custom SHAG-designed case, complete with COA, will be exclusively limited to just 150 Standard Edition Folios available-worldwide-for all Universal Horror and SHAG fans everywhere! A unique pairing of one of Hollywood’s grandest studios with the singular artistic vision that is SHAG, Dark Hall Mansion is proud to finally unveil this project to collectors everywhere.
The Standard edition 10-print “Universal Monsters x SHAG” Folio will price at $1200, while an extremely limited SHAG 10-Print Variant Folio Edition will price at $1900-with only 50 of these select Variant Folio editions available for all collectors worldwide!
