This month, Copro Gallery in Santa Monica once again pays homage to Mexican director Guillermo del Toro, helmer of horror-tinged films like Hellboy, Pacific Rim, Pan’s Labyrinth, and others. “Inspirations, Curiosities & Other Oddities” collects work from more than 50 artists. In turn, the show also pays tribute to the names that influenced Del Toro: Edgar Allen Poe, HP Lovecraft, Mary Shelley, and others.
“This show will be the fourth in a series of art shows that Chogrin has been putting together in tribute to del Toro since 2013’s ‘Into the Labyrinth & Mind of Guillermo del Toro,’” a statement says. “With each one of these art shows Chogrin hopes to create & curate artworks that showcase the many layers of del Toro’s genius work.”
Featured artists include Michael Ramstead, Gerald Brom, Chet Zar, Rovina Cai, Matt Dangle, Mark Covell, and several others. The works range from watercolors and acrylics to digital creations. See more of the works below.
