Gonzo Collection: An Art Tribute to Ralph Steadman
These glorious skull paintings are part of the Gonza Collection, an art tribute to Ralph Steadman. Ralph’s work with Hunter S. Thompson catapulted him into the illustration history books. His work was the perfect graphical representation for Hunter’s gonzo journalism and they formed a formidable partnership and friendship during a period of great gonzo writing where Hunter carved out a name for himself.
The Flying Dog Brewery, in association with Woods Contemporary, presents The Gonzo Collection – reinterpretations of Steadman’s work by some of today’s most notable contemporary artists, including; Justin Bua, Bob Dob, Nathan Spoor, Aaron Jasinski, Dan May, Michael Page, Nanami Cowdroy, Kukula, Chet Zar, Derek Gores, Heidi Taillefer, Jeff McMillan, Joe Vaux, Lou Pimentel, Tatiana Suarez, Jim Mahfood, Lani Imre, Fang Ling Lee, Sylvia O., Eric Richardson, Liz Brizzi, Michael Williams, Michael Owen, James Merrill, and William Shanklin to create work in the spirit of Steadman and Thompson.
The Gonzo Collection will be shown in a series of events through the end of October at a pop-up gallery space in Belvedere Square (at 5911 York Road, across from the Senator Theatre.
