This past weekend, our good friend and often-collaborator Alex Pardee opened a new show of an old favorite character, Bunnywith, at Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles. The concept drew a crowd: 100 $10 Bunnywith prints, all released at the opening, making for a 5-hour line outside the gallery.... we asked Mr. Pardee about the show, and this is what he told us...
"Given the initial inspirations for 'Bunnywith', the idea for the show was to create an art gallery experience that would not only be fun and imaginative but that could possibly allow EVERYONE to obtain some art if they wanted to. By releasing over 100 different $10 'Bunnywith' prints prints, kids and adults of all ages were able to purchase art, some for their very first time, which was a really amazing feeling." —Alex Pardee
