Big news for Disney fans attending SXSW in Austin this March. Mondo has announced they're opening an exhibition at their gallery in Austin during SXSW from March 7th to 11th. The gallery is titled "Nothing's Impossible" and they've partnered with Oh My Disney to feature limited edition artwork from Disney classics and current characters. To celebrate the news, they've debuted a print by Ken Taylor for Disney's Alice in Wonderland (1951), seen in full below. "Disney has a special way of bringing out the magic in all of us and we're very excited to bring that feeling to Austin at this year's gallery event," stated Justin Ishmael.
Here is one of the first prints to be featured in the gallery - Alice in Wonderland; along with the flyer for the opening. Mondo and Oh My Disney release posters digitally every week leading up to the gallery's opening on March 7th. The Little Mermaid art above is from a Tom Whalen poster in 2013. This art is by Ken Taylor:
We'll keep you updated on the best art - or just follow @MondoNews or Oh My Disney. "Having worked with Oh My Disney over the last year, we know the site celebrates reinventing timeless stories and we hope our work sparks the imagination of both Disney and Mondo fans," stated Mondo CEO Justin Ishmael. After partnering last year to debut limited edition artwork inspired by DuckTales and The Little Mermaid, Oh My Disney and Mondo invite fans to explore decades of beloved Disney films and characters like never before through original and fresh artwork from some of Mondo's most renowned artists like Martin Ansin, Jeff Soto, Jason Edmiston, Mike Mitchell, Ken Taylor and Rich Kelly. Sounds like a great show for Disney fans.
