The Lost Art of Inglourious Basterds

"Quentin Tarantino, Upper Playground and The Weinstein Company have teamed up to present, The Lost Art of Inglourious Basterds — a benefit for Haiti this Thurday, February 18th 2010 from 6:00-9:00pm in Downtown Los Angeles. A bunch of artists have created their own posters based on Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds. You can check out eleven of the thirteen posters after the jump. The event will be held at The Upper Playground Art Gallery, and all proceeds from this program will be donated to The American Red Cross to help the victims of the Haiti Earthquake. Each print will be numbered and signed by Quentin Tarantino, in a extremely limited edition of only six prints per poster."

"This creative team has assembled the following select group of accomplished artists, David Choe, Sam Flores, Estevan Oriol, Grotesk, Jeremy Fish, Patrick Martinez, Alex Pardee, Dora Drimalas, Munk One, N8 Van Dyke, Rene Alamanza, Morning Breath and Skinner Davis, to create their own poster art based off their interpretation of the Oscar Nominated film, “Inglourious Basterds” artwork."

Alex FUCKING Pardee! He's one of my favourite artists. I wish I could buy a copy of his print, but they're only available The Upper Playground Gallery in LA =( I bet you can guess which one is Alex Pardees'

But I can't have, so this will probably be the last your hear about it =D You can check out bigger previews at the site were I swiped most of the post from =D http://www.slashfilm.com/2010/02/16/cool-stuff-the-lost-art-of-inglourious-basterds/

  1. These are great! I think my favorite is the one w/the spanking--I love that vintagey stuff.

    I feel like they'll probably start making prints of these after the event since the money is going to charity.
