Tom Whalen and Dave Perillo Re-Team for ‘BFF’ Show for Gallery 1988

Germain Lussier, IO9:

Great art might come from conflict, but friendship is important too. That’s why for their latest gallery show Tom Whalen and Dave Perillo have decided to focus on pop culture’s most famous BFFs.

BFF is the title of the new exhibit presented by Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles. It’s online right now and features over 40 brand new pop culture best friend sets by the two artists, all 4×4 inches, and sold in sets of two, three or four. We’re talking Gremlins, Goonies, Ghostbusters, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Spongebob Squarepants, Space Jam, Star Wars, Harry Potter, there’s something for everyone. Plus, because the prints are only 4×4, you can basically put them anywhere.

Really fun show. If I didn’t have an entire stack of art to hang right now, I’d consider it myself. I have a strong love for the Perillo “Alex vs. Aaron” pin set and the “Party Time! Excellent!” print set.
