Well, it appears as if “He who never sleeps” has quite a few surprises in store for fans tonight. Who are we talking about? His name is Tom Whalen and he is an artist by trade who creates highly desirable works of art that leaves fans craving, coveting and conspiring to get their hands on anything he produces. What he produces is pure awesomeness and tonight, 10/3/14, Tom is collaborating with Gallery 1988 on a new solo show called “Bust’d.”
Here is what Gallery 1988 had to say about the event. For this show Tom has created new, limited edition screenprints, prints on metal and originals, all within the theme of pop culture busts. There are 35 new images in the show, each affordable, signed and numbered. From 7-10 PM tonight, at G1988 (West), Tom will be in attendance as we officially open the show, making the work available for the first time ever. The work will be posted online for purchase tomorrow afternoon at gallery1988.com for those unable to attend tonight.
See what we mean? 35 all new images. We have NO idea how he cranks out this much stupendous work but we have a vague idea it either involves a steady diet of Mountain Dew and Snickers or drinking the blood of young virgins. Whatever it is, we don’t care because the work speaks for itself.
Do yourself a favor, GO to this show! Tom is hands down one of the nicest people you will meet and his art will make your walls look much better. If you can’t make it there tonight, stop by the gallery anyway as it will be up on the walls until November 1. Be sure to follow Tom on TWITTER to learn about new releases and upcoming gallery shows. Head over to his OFFICIAL WEBSITE to see what other goodies he has laying around and check out his stunning portfolio while you are there.
