As if Quentin Tarantino wasn’t already cool enough. The guy is responsible for producing the most memorable cult films of the nineties and noughties. He has re-introduced the world to some of the slickest tunes to be forgotten by time and now, he goes one better and shows the world just how much of a nice guy he is.
Mr- not only am I talented but a really nice guy-Tarantino, has teamed up with the Weinstein Company, Progressive art brand Upper Playground and SA Studio’s Global Film Marketing Division, to present The Lost Art Of Inglorious Basterds. A benefit art program in which all proceeds raised were donated to the American Red Cross’s Haiti Earthquake Appeal.
The exhibition took place on the 18th February, (sorry guys, might have just missed out!) and showcased a series of accomplished artists and their own interpretations of Mr Tarantino’s World War II film Inglorious Bastereds artwork.
Artists taking part in the exhibition include: David Choe, Sam Flores, Estevan Oriol, Grotesk, Jeremy Fish, Patrick Martinez, Alex Pardee, Dora Drimalas, Munk One, N8 Van Dyke, Rene Alamanza, Morning Breath and Skinner Davis.
Each print was numbered and signed by the man himself, Mr Tarantino, and only six copies of each were made. Costing a nice $300 US a piece, purchase of the prints was restricted to attendees of Upper Playground’s Los Angeles gallery, no internet or phone orders were taken – that’s just cruel!
