Influential Figures by Lou Pimentel
Opens at Gallery1988 Friday, January 8, 2021

For Influential Figures Lou Pimentel created 37 original water color paintings inspired by vintage action figures and pop culture icons. The complete show will be available for viewing and sale at gallery1988.com starting at 12pm PST on Friday, January 8th. Following the virtual launch, at 1:30pm PST @galleries1988 is hosting an Instagram livestream virtual gallery tour with artist Lou Pimentel and Jensen Karp.

There will be no in-gallery viewings, it is exclusively online. Purchased paintings will be available for curbside pickup and will ship after January 23rd. 

Each water color ranges in size from 6″x9″ to 11″x14″. Paintings are mounted onto laser cut backer boards with a silk-screened wood back. Then classic vintage-style figures and blisters are mounted onto the art to make the final pieces.

Originally dubbed Vintage Gold, this show, curated by DKE Toys, is a continuation of the series that premiered at New York Comic Con in 2018 with the first 20 pieces. Followed by another 20 pieces for the 2019 NYCC. 

“For the Vintage Gold series I traveled back in time to my childhood. I remember the feeling of walking down the toy aisle and seeing all the fun, bright packages that contained the figures I so desperately wanted. I wanted to channel that energy, and excitement into my paintings. I wanted the inner child in all of us to say I WANT THAT!!” -Lou Pimentel

There are always more photos on our Flickr. We will be updating this with more images soon.

As a child Lou spent countless hours drawing, or building forts and costumes out of cardboard. Those worry-free, simple days were golden for him. He aims to reconnect and record those feelings with his work. They are his time capsules, documenting his interests and feelings, past and present. www.loupimentel.com

About DesignerCon: Founded in 2005 by Ben Goretsky, DesignerCon brings together artists, manufacturers, distributors, and retailers in the designer toy / vinyl collectibles market and has grown to incorporate everything in the design world including apparel, plush, printing, sculpture, designer toys, and both fine and urban art. The steady growth DesignerCon has enjoyed correlates with its popularity in today’s art nerd, geek culture; collectors and designer toy lovers alike wait through the night for new releases, pre-orders for new artist collaboration apparel are sold out within minutes, and artists use the convention as an opportunity to announce exclusive releases and collaborations. www.designercononline.com

Hand painted cardback with hand cast 3.75′ carded figure. Signed edition of 40.
$100
If you are not familiar with the hand painted movie posters from Ghana, you should google it. It’s a thing. Although the Ghanaian Video Clubs are no more, many of the artists are now represented by @deadlypreygallery. Thanks to them we bring you 40 one of a kind hand painted card backs by Farkira. Each piece is signed and numbered and comes with the most horribly cast figure we could find.
