Growing up we were all massively influenced by a whole range of influential, iconic characters from the world of TV, film and comics. We still are to this day. This past week, artist (and friend of TTC), Lou Pimentel put on a gallery show at Gallery1988 in LA featuring a whole range of those aforementioned influential figures in a show titled, Influential Figures.
Each piece of art created for this show featured a bootleg figure mounted on original watercolour painting by Lou which have been mounted on awood panel, ready to hang in your home/collection. From the likes of Darth Vader, Andre the Giant, Captain America, Robocop, Rowdy Roddy Piper and so many more. Each unique and available to purchase from Gallery1988 online. Priced between $250-500 each. You can check them out below, and if any take your fancy you can purchase online HERE.
For those that want to get their bootleg fix on a slimmer budget, Lou has created two limited runs of Bootleg Gold Sucklord (LE200) and Bootleg Gold Pimp (LE200). Both priced at $30 each and can be purchased HERE. They are on printed backing cards.
