We love a good art show, especially when it is filled with a lot of amazing and weird creations. Last Rites Gallery just opened their newest show: Dark Pop 4. The show features the art of Travis Lampe, Mascorro,
Mark Garro, Dark Vomit and others. The show focuses on art with a dark edge to it, and much of it takes heavily from history and pop culture. We’ve gathered some of our favorite pieces below from the Hitler Flower Vase to the Zombie Stay Puft Marshmallow Man and even the Dr. Suess style poster for the movie Se7en.

DARK POP 4
Guest curated by Gary Pressman

NEW YORK, NY (March 3rd, 2012)- Last Rites Gallery presents “Dark Pop 4″ group art exhibition.

Last Rites Gallery, for the fourth consecutive year, presents the “Dark Pop 4″ group art exhibition guest curated by Gary Pressman (director of Copro Gallery). Artists are asked to create One piece that is truly considered ‘Dark Art’. Many artists find themselves in the groove of creating a certain mood or emotion through their work and have, understandably, become quite comfortable following this path in their art-making. At Last Rites Gallery we want to break that mold and challenge artists to create a piece that searches through new or buried feelings and emotions. The artist’s will let go of the light and allow the dark to thrive, as pop takes on a new form.

Artists Include: Alexandra Pacula, Ana Bagayan, Annie Owens, Becca, Brian Despain, Cathie Bleck, Charles Wish, Chrystal Chan, Dark Vomit, Dave MacDowell, Eric Alos, Eric Richardson, Francesco De Molfetta, Isabel Samaras, Jennybird Alcantara, Joe Vaux, John Brophy, Mark Elliott, Mark Garro, Mascorro, Matt Dangler, Matthew Grabelsky, Niagara, TIN, Travis Lampe, Travis Louie, Yoko d’Holbachie

Opening Reception:
Saturday, March 3rd, 7-11pm
Show runs until April 8th
