It is at long last, time to release my personal copies of my screen prints from Mucho Machismo. The art show that remembers and fucks with the mindless violent entertainment that made growing up in the 80’s and 90’s the best!! I’m wicked tired, if you wanna hear me blather on about the show in detail check out this interview.
It was my first time curating and I thank Spoke Art and all the awesome artists who participated in the show. There are still copies of other pieces from the show available in the Spoke Art store, check that shit out!
As for these three screen prints I’m adding to my store today:
“Beverly Hills Cobra” is a mash up of Beverly Hills Cop and Cobra. Sylvester Stallone was originally cast as the lead in Beverly Hills Cop, obviously he left the project. Stallone wanted to make a heavy dark action movie, not an upbeat comedic action romp. Thus Sly made the Cannon classic, Cobra.
The concept here is what if he kept/forced that dark action vibe into Beverly Hills Cop.
“You Vil Lose” is a mash up of Mike Tyson’s Punch Out and Rocky IV….specifically from the point of view of Apollo Creed.
“Sexual Tyrannosaurus” is a visual interpretation of Jesse Ventura’s line from Predator….with a few other little hints and tidbits from the film.
