Austin’s Mondo Gallery is doing a one-week poster show highlighting the Nickelodeon classic properties we’ve grown up with and loved. These include prints from The Ren & Stimpy Show, SpongeBob SquarePants, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Rocko’s Modern Life, Aaahh!!! Real Monsters and Avatar. The show features many talented artists, including Florian Bertmer, Dave Perillo, Francesco Francavilla, Rosemary Valero-O’Connell, Sachin Teng, Ciro Nieli, Sara Kipin and Janice Chu.
The opening of the show is marked by a free ( and open to the public) reception on Friday, December 9, from 7:00 – 10:00pm at the Mondo Gallery in Austin, TX (4115 Guadalupe St). The show will run through Saturday, December 17. They will also feature a special Family Day on December 10th that features a Slime Building Workshop with Mad Science of Austin, face painting, photo booth, coffee and donuts, and more.
Mondo Creative Director Mitch Putnam said “Nickelodeon was a huge part of my childhood. It represented everything cool and rebellious, and parents didn’t know anything about it. We worked with a number of great artists to pay homage to some of the channel’s most influential programming. We hope you have as much fun seeing it as we had making it.”“Thrilled to be part of the Nickelodeon show with Mondo. I grew up watching Nickelodeon when my family first got cable in the early ’80s, with shows like Pinwheeland You Can’t Do That on Television. Always wanted to get slimed for saying ‘I don’t know?’ or food poisoning from Barth’s Burgery,” said artist Dave Perillo.
