We’re pretty damn stoked about seeing Godzilla this weekend, especially after the rest of us read Brent’s review. But while we’re all about celebrating our favorite city-stomping, atomic-breathed giant lizard, I must confess that “art” isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when I think of Godzilla. Unless Art is the name of some poor schmuck that Godzilla steps on during one of his rampages. Thankfully some very creative folks did use Godzilla as their personal muse, resulting a very cool collection of artistic riffs on the classic movie monster.
The shots are all from the folks over at Shock Till You Drop, who hit up the “Godzilla: All Art Attack!” exhibit at Creature Features in Burbank, California. The show opened this past Sunday and is set to run through June 1. Even better, admission to the museum is FREE, so it’s definitely worth the trip if you’re within tripping distance. The images we’re including represent only a small sliver of the full show, but these were some of our favorites. I mean, how can you not love Godzilla hanging ten on a ship? That’s the best use of an ocean vessel since Pacific Rim had Gipsy Danger grab one and go batter up across the face of an angry kaiju.
And now we know what Godzilla dreams about. Sort of. UFOs I guess? I will confess that at first I thought he was sleeping in a toilet. Don’t judge me, I know you see it too.
Creature Features is located at 2904 W. Magnolia Blvd. in downtown Burbank. If Godzilla can’t entice you in, they’re apparently doing a Planet of the Apes show later this summer as well. On the other hand, if Burbank is nowhere near your stomping grounds and you lack both superspeed and easy access to teleportation technology, you can check out tons more over at Shock Till You Drop.
