Dark Hall Mansion… Tom Whalen… Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory… NUFF SAID!

Directed by Mel Stuart in 1971 and based off the novel by Roald Dahl, “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” is a beloved musical fantasy that has captured and held the hearts of fans everywhere for the past 46 years.  Gene Wilder’s portrayal of the reclusive, eccentric candy factory owner could arguably be one of the silver screens greatest characters.

Today, Dark Hall Mansion has partnered with the immensely talented artist Tom Whalen to give fans a VERY special print that pays homage to the brilliance of the film and talent of Gene Wilder and it’s scrumdidilyumptious!  Here is the official announcement… hold on to your Everlasting Gobstoppers:

In partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, Dark Hall Mansion is very pleased to release our officially licensed “WILLY WONKA & THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY” limited edition fine art prints by leading contemporary artist, Tom Whalen, and available Friday, July 28th, at 12:30 PM-PST!

DHM, in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, welcomes back artist Tom Whalen for his view of the candy colored world that is “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory.” Drawing on the classic characters and elements that so inform and define this beloved classic Tom’s sense of composition and intense use of color never loses sight of the story’s arc and sheer fun.

From his take on the kids and their unforgettable moments within the chocolate factory to the bubbles of fizzy soda pop that waft up, the Everlasting Gobstopper and lickable wallpaper anchoring the inimitable Oompa Loompas, Tom brings it all together under the slightly sly and mischievous gaze of the one and only Willy Wonka. With a tumbling Violet from Willy Wonka’s lapel as counterpoint to Charlie’s triumphant moment finding the Golden Ticket, it’s all here, so welcome all…to pure imagination.

Tom Whalen’s “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory” editions measure 18″ x 24,” are 8-color screen prints, strictly limited and hand numbered.
