With Mondo’s next gallery show “The Art of Ken Taylor” opening Friday night in Austin, our friends at Mondo are letting us premiere his poster for Boris Karloff’s Frankenstein. The screenprint is being offered two ways: as a regular and variant edition with different colors. The regular is an edition of 375 and the variant is 175. Both are 24 x 36.
In addition to the Frankenstein poster, Taylor also did posters for Children of Men & Little Shop of Horrors, which are two movies Mondo has never previously tackled before. Hit the jump to check out our exclusive Frankenstein posters and for more information on the show.
“The Art of Ken Taylor” is open from May 30th through June 21st. The opening night event will be Friday, May 30th from 7 – 10pm at the Mondo Gallery, located at 4115 Guadalupe St. in Austin, TX. Ken Taylor will be in attendance. About the show Taylor said:
“Flying halfway across the world to exhibit my work for this amazing collector niche still blows my mind every day. This is the culmination of many months of hard work and stress (but more importantly, fun), and I can’t wait to show it all,” said Taylor.
