The Legendary Lions of Voltron Invade Hero Complex Gallery
Los Angeles continues to surprise me, with its always infuriating traffic and truth increasingly apparent truth of the LA Hipster stereotype. But despite the negatives, Los Angeles always has a silver lining, and I’m not talking about the smog or wildfires. Ther are places like Hero Complex Gallery hidden surprisingly close to where I live. Hero Complex Gallery is an art gallery that specializes in pop-art themed shows. You can find a list of their past, present, future shows, as well as pop-up shows, at their site.
Currently being featured at Hero Complex Gallery (HCG), is Dreamworks’ Voltron Legendary Defender. The gallery is filled with exclusive artwork from talented artists, such as Bruce Yan and Nathan J. Anderson, and also features key art from the production of the upcoming series. Most of everything featured is available for purchase in person or on HCG’s online store. The most impressive and probably intriguing part of the art is how limited it is. Most pieces are 1/15 and I did not see anything over 1/200 and that was a piece directly from Dreamworks. Being able to own a piece of fandom that is official and unique is something that tickles the fancy of any collector.
I am no art critic, but I was in awe of the pieces available. I particularly liked the range of mediums, there were traditional paintings and prints, but there were also crayon sculptures, vinyl sewn canvas, hand-made plushies and other truly unique pieces that not only show off talents but also how wide the fanbase is. Talking about art is a lot less impressive than seeing it, so check out the pictures or if you can head over to HCG and witness it in person. The exhibit will be available until and Dreamworks’ Voltron Legendary Defender will release on Netflix June 10th.
