DKE Toys presents: Lou Pimentel's 'Influential Figures Too' at Gallery1988!

FADE PROOF LOU is back in action for his awesome 'Influential Figures Too' art show, and for this, Lou Pimentel created 25 original water color paintings inspired by vintage action figures and pop culture icons. The complete show will be available for viewing and sale at Gallery1988.com starting at 12pm Pacific on Saturday, January 8th. The gallery will also be open at the same time for in-person viewing and continuing through January 22nd during regular gallery hours... and he's created classics such as: Bart Simpson, Frankenstein, Raphael, Uhura, Snake, Megatron, Charlie Brown, and many others... soooooo good!
Each water color ranges in size from 6"x9" to 8-1/2"x11". Paintings are mounted onto laser cut backer boards with a silk-screened wood back. Then classic vintage-style figures and blisters are mounted onto the art to make the final pieces. Lou mentions, "For the Vintage Gold series I traveled back in time to my childhood. I remember the feeling of walking down the toy aisle and seeing all the fun, bright packages that contained the figures I so desperately wanted. I wanted to channel that energy, and excitement into my paintings. I wanted the inner child in all of us to say I WANT THAT!!" Originally dubbed Vintage Gold, this show, curated by DKE Toys, is a continuation of the series that premiered at New York Comic Con in 2018 with the first 20 pieces. Followed by another 20 pieces for the 2019 NYCC. Jan 2021 Lou had his first show at Gallery1988 with Influential Figures.
