Frank-Frazetta-Museum-Postcard

For a limited time only during SXSW 2015, from Saturday 14th to Saturday 21st March, Robert Rodriguez is proud to present a curated collection of original art, including twelve masterwork paintings by iconic artist FRANK FRAZETTA, including original paintings of CONAN THE BARBARIAN and DEATH DEALER. Considered to be the most influential fantasy artist in history, Frazetta contributed iconic artwork to classic works of fiction for Conan the Barbarian, Tarzan and John Carter of Mars among others. Other notable artwork featured is artwork from the upcoming Rodriguez film “FIRE and ICE” based on the works of Frank Frazetta.

The gallery will also feature an original SIN CITY masterpiece by FRANK MILLER, original art by DREW STRUZAN including his rendering of Sylvester Stallone for the movie poster FIRST BLOOD, and original poster art for THE THING. Original paintings by New Pop Art master SEBASTIAN KRÜGER including hyper real paintings of Keith Richards, Mick Jagger and Danny Trejo. Bronzed art sculptures from CLETE SHIELDS. Shields’ work has been commissioned by Quentin Tarantino, Kevin Smith, Robert Rodriguez, and Samuel L. Jackson.

In addition, the gallery will feature original movie props from Rodriguez’s films and painted portraits of characters from Rodriguez’s films between Rodriguez himself and his actors including paintings by Josh Brolin, Rosario Dawson, Lady Gaga, Bruce Willis, and Joseph Gordon Levitt. There will also be a selection of hand numbered giclée prints of Frazetta pieces photographed and printed by Robert Rodriguez available for purchase. Proceeds from the prints and merchandise benefit the preservation of Frank Frazetta’s art.

The idea for the museum has been long in the making. Robert Rodriguez, along with the cooperation of the Frazetta family, has been touring Frank Frazetta original art at Comic Con and Wizard Con to continue the wish of Frank Frazetta, a friend and collaborator of Robert’s who always wanted audiences to see his paintings in person. The original Frazetta museum in upstate New York closed after the passing of Frank Frazetta in 2010. The new Rodriguez museum features other world class artists Robert has also worked with and studied under over the years, with art that he’s collected himself, and others that are on exclusive loan for this event. The FRANK FRAZETTA COLLECTION has an unprecedented amount of original masterpieces including Death Dealer 2, Egyptian Queen, At the Earth’s Core, Conan Man Ape and Dark Kingdom, as well a rare original painting Frazetta did for the movie FROM DUSK TIL DAWN among others, 12 original masterpiece paintings total.
