UD Gallery Presents Dave Perillo’s Take on Pulp Fiction!
Posted On 01 Jan 2016 / 0 Comment
Dave Perillo is a fan-favorite ‘Art-o-Rama’ artist who has covered a wide array of subjects that range from Jaws to the Three Stooges and just about everything in between. His latest work of art is inspired by Quentin Tarantino’s critically acclaimed film, “Pulp Fiction” and was created exclusively for the Upper Deck Gallery. Perillo’s 12” x 36” illustration depicts the cast of Pulp Fiction characters in iconic scenes from the movie using the artist’s unique style of bright colors, geometrical patterns and distinctive layouts.
“I was super excited for the opportunity to work on this project for the Upper Deck Gallery, especially since Pulp Fiction is one of my all-time favorite movies. It is such a fantastic story filled with so many unique characters. I love how the movie has a retro quality to it without really specifying when it takes place. My goal was to translate that into the print, hopefully doing it justice.” - Dave Perillo
Coming off the success of his first independent film “Reservoir Dogs,” Quentin Tarantino made “Pulp Fiction” just two years later in 1994, and the film immediately became a hit with critics and audiences thanks to engaging dialogue, compelling character development and a wry mix of humor and violence. The film went on to earn seven Academy Award nominations, and won for Best Original Screenplay. It has since earned a large cult following, garnering respect for its ingenious writing, enduring cultural effect and the fact it opened the doors for a sizable wave of independent filmmaking.
