Pop-art connoisseurs are treated to a mind-bending journey through the blistering paintings of San Francisco artist Dirty Donny Gillies. Take a visual tour of his vibrant, hand-drawn and screen-printed poster art series “Blacklight Rebellion” and hand-painted solo art show “Fantastic Voyage.”
This ultimate collection of cool also includes his iconic work for Stern Pinball, metal giant Metallica, Vans Skate, Snap-On tools, and Cruz Pedregon’s Top Fuel Funny Car, not to mention work on his own air-brushed 1970s boogie van.
The art attack continues with eye-melting imagery from skateboard decks, decal sets, toys, guitars, drums, and his series of model kits for AMT.
Pop-art collectors will appreciate full-page photos from the likes of legendary street photographer Ricky Powell, as well as the commentary by Ed Robertson of the Bare Naked Ladies, Mastadon’s Brann Dailor, Brendon Small of animated series Metalocalypse, Howie Pyro, (Danzig, D-Generation) and fellow weirdo artist Skinner.
This is simply the perfect gift for the coolest person on your list. From the blacklight colors on the suede-like cover to the mind-blowing art within, Pinball Wizards & Blacklight Destroyers: The Art of Dirty Donny Gillies is a trip and a half.
