Majestic Velvet Paintings of Nerd Icons

Fresh from Gallery1988 in Los Angeles, here’s their latest serving of pop culture art… classical style. For the series Velvet Paintings for Your Inner Nerd, artist Bruce White employed the ancient technique of painting on velvet, producing inappropriately sophisticated portraits of Robocop, Doc, Jareth the Goblin King, and other iconic characters from our most beloved, delightfully geeky films and television shows. Such rich colors. Such luscious texture. Such poppin’ gradients of light. And, oh my, what dignified poses! Finally, Dwight Schrute gets the proper treatment he deserves.
