I went to the Daft Punk inspired art show in San Francisco, and I think you should too… Going in not knowing what to expect, I will sum it up by saying I left with two fine art prints…
For the second year in a row, the Gauntlet Gallery in San Francisco presents Daft Punk Deux, a soon to be regular annual exhibit of art inspired by the album of the year winning French robots. The exhibit features works by over 40 painters, sculptors, digital and screen print artists who have all created original works inspired by Guy-Man and Thomas. All of the work is specifically inspired by Daft Punk’s music videos, extraordinary visuals of their infrequent live performances, and their robot suits and personas.
Daft Punk Deux debuted on May 31st and the exhibit will be on view in San Francisco until June 24th. So, if you didn’t have plans to visit Northern California this summer, it seems like there is a mighty fine reason to head on over now. Located at 1040 Larkin Street, Gauntlet Gallery’s hours are 1 to 7 pm.
Here now are a few of my favorites that I snapped along the way. I was excited, it was crowded, so forgive any improper composition or framing in the photos. Furthermore, I would recommend playing the following song, it pairs quite nicely with the daft art...
(Author's note: I bought these babies by Boneface, pretty gnarly right?)
