The Klopeks


A dream of mine for the past couple of years is that one day, I would get to participate in Gallery 1988's  grand group art show, Crazy 4 Cult. Well, this Thursday, this dream becomes reality! I knew that if I ever got to participate in the show, I wanted to do the Klopek family from Joe Dante's 1989 classic, 'The Burbs. I'm a huge fan of this film. I remember watching it on satellite tv back in the day about a million times. And while working on this piece, I watched it through about a dozen times. And let me tell you, it NEVER gets old. It's awesome! If you've never seen it, I highly encourage you to check it out.

If you live in or around New York, NY, go and treat yourself to a show that is going to be a fantastic display of cinematic pop culture art of epic proportions! The show opens Thursday, Aug. 9, and runs through Sept. 1.

  1. "Klopek. Is that Slavic?" I LOVE it! You have such a great obscure eye. And The Burbs has so many quoatable lines. "Sardine?"

  2. Hey Girlie....a big congrats to you on the reaching of another goal! They couldn't have chosen a more talented and deserving artist to include in their show! Hope it's a good show. The piece is great!

  6. Yes! And apparently there were people who slept in line overnight just to get in to the show today! That's exciting! Thank you, I hope I did Dante proud!

  7. LOVE this piece! The 'Burbs is a vastly under-rated flick, in my opinion!
