OPEN CALL for Artists! Hashtag Gallery 'Cult Classics' Art Show - 06 Nov 2014

#1  Top Rated Post
Show off your ART! Submit fine art that pays homage to your favourite Cult Classic move or TV show!

A cult classic is a motion picture or tv show or even a book series that has acquired a cult following. Cult films are known for their dedicated, passionate fanbase, an elaborate subculture that engage in repeated viewings, quoting dialogue, and audience participation. Inclusive definitions allow for major studio productions, especially box office bombs, while exclusive definitions focus more on obscure, transgressive films shunned by the mainstream.

They Live - 1988

In the cult classic 80s era film 'They Live', wrestling star turned actor Rowdy Roddy Piper finds a pair of sunglasses that demonstrate how the world is different than what they perceive - its filled with strange aliens that are controlling the world by producing and broadcasting a hypnotizing television broadcast. Some of the iconic imagery from this film transcends the movie and appears on TShirts and Internet Art Memes.
