This Friday Austin’s Guzu Gallery will be hosting their first themed art show entitled “Strange Beasts: A Tribute to the Japanese Kaiju Phenomenon.” The show includes screen prints, original artwork and custom toys from artists both local and nationwide, and from the pieces The Blot’s seen so far this show is going to be pretty awesome!
A band of twenty rogue artists have been assembled to defeat…ahem, pay homage to…those mighty, mammoth monsters from the movie and TV screens of Japan. As we speak, kaiju are awakening all over the world…soon the invasion will begin at Guzu Gallery! The Strange Beats opening reception will be this Friday, November 30th, from 7-10pm and the artwork will remain up through the end of 2012. If you can't make it out to the gallery in Austin don’t worry, they will have a number of limited edition screen prints available via the Guzu Gallery online store beginning Saturday, December 1st, at noon CST.
