Tragic Sunshine - The Art of Kevin Tong

General art-related discussion.

Postby mike123230 on Tue Jun 28, 2011 4:36 pm

I realized there wasn't a separate topic for Kevin Tong. At the risk of sounding sycophantic, the stuff he's been doing has been incredible.

There was no listing for this poster on EB, but it just went up on his store:

I've recently picked up quite a bit of his stuff, really enjoy what he's doing and his body of work is pretty impressive if you look at it.

Yeah, this one is a stunner! It's gonna look really nice next to his Mogwai - still one of my favourite prints of the year.

Great guy to deal with, too! Cheers Kevin. :pint:

That is definitely a cool image. Does anyone else have problems loading that site, though? The images never load for me and all I get is vertical lines. I just tried from my work computer, and the same thing happened at home the last time I tried.

I was stunned that "Just Another Working Joe" wasn't posted here on EB.

I bought it last week and it arrived yesterday, I submitted for it to be added last night.

Great artist. I've got his I Saw the Devil. I think Novos was stunning too.

I'd really love to pick up some of his Wes Anderson woodprints but no shipping to the UK. :(

They're great looking in person and well worth it through Kevin. If you buy the entire wood set it averages out to just over 63 bucks a piece, basically the same price Spoke Art is selling the paper versions.

I'm praying those are still available in a few months when I get a raise...

Kevin's two prints from the Gallery 1988 show (Crazy 4 Cult V) will be up on his site sometime today. He did posters for Being John Malcovich and Eternal Sunshine.
