Beware the slug. If you're a big fan of Mondo Tees and their fantastic posters, which seem to arrive every week, we've got some great news. It looks like Mondo is opening a gallery in Austin during SXSW in March and has been teasing it with cryptic invites. Last week, a few bloggers were sent invites in the mail featuring this same artwork (see below). Now they've officially announced that it's coming and this is the public secret sneak preview event (via @MondoNews). The invite art can be seen in full below and includes an address as well as a date and time, the public opening. "We're hre to shed a little light... but not much." Take a look!
Here's the official public invite, for anyone interested in checking out Mondo's gallery opening in Austin on Saturday, March 10th, which is right around the start of the SXSW Film Festival. I wish I could be there.
"Mondo, the internationally-renowned collectible art boutique, is getting some new digs. And to celebrate, they will hold their first ever Mondo Gallery Event." While we don't exactly know what is debuting at the gallery's opening, or who will be there, or what artwork they'll be showing, I'm excited either way. Mondo makes amazing art and they usually put a lot of passion into their projects, and I'm sure this will be impressive, too. Championed for their limited edition screen printed posters, Mondo focuses on bringing art back to movie posters by working with artists such as Olly Moss, Tyler Stout, Martin Ansin, Ken Taylor, Aaron Horkey, Shepard Fairey, Drew Struzan and others. That's all we've got, but we'll keep you updated.
