Crazy 4 Cult: Cult Movie Art

Crazy 4 CultThe annual Crazy 4 Cult art show at Gallery 1988 in LA has garnered a buzz over the years, bringing various pop culture-influenced artists together to celebrate cult movies.

Crazy 4 Cult: Cult Movie Art (published by Titan Books) presents an array of works from the first 4 years of the show, with artwork inspired by such movies as The Big Lebowski, Donnie Darko, Office Space, Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure, Evil Dead and many more.

The book is sweet pulpy confection, kicking off with a quick intro by Crazy 4 Cult host Kevin Smith and then jumping gleefully into page after page of glorious film homage.

I’ve included some of my favorite pieces below…I particularly like some of the works that mash up multiple films (i.e., Willy Wonka with Texas Chainsaw Massacre, E.T. with Alien).
