These are simply fantastic. And exhaustive, and clever. In a series aptly called ICON, these illustrated scenes should trigger an accompanying scene or motif from a classic movie. Wayne’s World, The Fifth Element, Office Space, anyone? Created by Dan Kuhlken and Nathan Goldman, their show is fun and engaging, and the art is pure pop deliciousness.
“Every film has one. A signature prop, set, or location. Something that, in a single image, can represent the entire movie. The design team of Dan Kuhlken and Nathan Goldman, also known as DKNG, call these images “Icons,” and they are the subject of their first ever solo show at Gallery 1988 West in Los Angeles.
The show, called simply ICON, is comprised of 50 pieces featuring iconic places and things from some of your favorite movies and TV shows of all time. Each piece is small – 12 inches square – and is of one thing that sums up an entire movie. And of course, each is done in DKNG’s distinctive bright, geometric yet detailed style.”
