Gallery 1988 has quickly become one of the world’s most talked about art galleries. Opened in 2004 on the famous corner of Melrose and La Brea, by California natives Katie Cromwell and Jensen Karp, the gallery has become the nation’s number one destination for pop-culture themed artwork and the premiere venue to witness the rise of emerging artists before they break.
Recently the gallery teamed up with Chogrin to organize an exhibition in tribute to Guillermo del Toro. Dozens of artists worked on pieces inspired by movies such as Cronos, Pan’s Labyrinth, Pacific Rim, Hellboy and more. Check out some of their creations below.
