Check Out The Amazing Pop Culture Portraiture Of Kirk Demarais And Dave MacDowell

Entertainment Editor

Dave MacDowell “Lord Of The Lebowski’s”

Two artists we love will be exhibiting their work tonight at Gallery 1988‘s Venice location in Los Angeles starting at 7 PM. We’ve already featured Dave MacDowell‘s work at Gamma Squad and Film Drunk, and the painting above is a good representation of his skilled caricature mashups of beloved works. We’ve also been meaning to feature the pop culture family portraits of Kirk Demarais for awhile. His colored pencil drawings evoke the awkward formal portraits we all had to sit for with our families at some point, but he uses the awkward family photo style to pay tribute to the families in our favorite TV shows and movies.
Our favorite works from the show are below. These and the rest can be viewed at Gallery 1988 and may still be available to buy.
