PHOTOS -Bottleneck Gallery – KONG: SKULL ISLAND – TRIBE OF KONG Art Show!

This weekend, Bottleneck Gallery celebrating one of cinema’s largest, classic creatures: KING KONG!

With Kong: Skull Island being unleashed in theaters on March 10th, Bottleneck Gallery teamed up with Warner Bros. and The Legendary Art Series to bring you Tribe of Kong–a wild pop-up gallery paying artistic tribute to the legendary movie monster and his return to the big screen.

Tribe of Kong is a limited pop-up gallery that features pieces from different artists as well as the creative team at Legendary. There was also be plenty of fan art and fun marketing materials from the the Kong: Skull Island movie!

The pop-up gallery launch party was tonight from 6 to 9pm. Admission was FREE and there was catered food, full open bar as well as some awesome giveaways for the Monday screening premiere at the Alamo Draft House in Brooklyn, NY! 

Lots of King Kong art and Bottleneck Gallery debuts three brand new Kong: Skull Island prints from artist Karl Fitzgerald. Each of Karl’s pieces displays a different aspect of the character of Kong, whether it’s rage or a quiet, connecting calm–we think Karl really outdid himself with these brilliant prints.

All three of Karl’s Kong: Skull Island prints are available for purchase Saturday (3/4) @ 12PM ET on BottleneckGallery.com

Here are some photos from the show that NY Photographer Christoper Smaragdas was able to capture.
