Gallery 1988 posted all of the art from the Under The Influence: Masters of the Universe Tribute Art Show, which took place over the weekend in Los Angeles.
“Everybody seems to cling to what we remember from as children,” curator and gallery co-owner Jensen Karp told the LA Weekly. “That’s what this show is all about. It’s not only saying that we love what the past was about but it’s also saying that it helped our creativity grow.”
For boys of a certain age, playing with cheap plastic toys developed not only a sense of adventure, but for myself it fostered a sense of storytelling. For others, like the artists in the shows, I imagine it created a love for art and drawing and a path that led them to the gallery over the weekend.
