Sistine Pop Screen Print Series by Joshua Budich

Sistine Pop Screen Print Series by Joshua Budich - The Transformers “Optimus”, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe “Sorceress”, Akira “Tetsuo”, Ghostbusters “Gozer”, Jaws “Brody” & 2001: A Space Odyssey “Dave”

Joshua Budich recently participated in a group art show with Jeff Boyes and Jay Shaw at Gallery1988. For his portion of the show, Joshua attempted to marry his study and love of the classical Renaissance masters with all of his childhood obsessions and influences from pop-culture, movies, toys, TV, etc. He decided to place bigger than life characters within the Sistine Chapel environment, elevating them to an even grander iconic stature similar to what Michelangelo did with the biblical Prophets and Sybils.

The minute The Blot heard about Budich’s Sistine Pop Series I thought it sounded like a cool idea, but I had my reservations. Then I saw all six prints and I was blown away! These seriously turned out even better than I could have imagined. The series includes “Optimus” from The Transformers, “Sorceress” from He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, “Tetsuo” from Akira, “Gozer” from Ghostbusters, “Brody” from Jaws and “Dave” from 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Each Sistine Pop piece by Joshua Budich is an 18″x18″ 6-color screen print that comes signed and numbered by the artist. Each print has a limited edition run size of 75 pieces, 50 of each which are available now at Gallery1988’s online store for just $40 each.
