See the satirical mechanical character art on show at the Robot Carnival

These robot-themed prints are being exhibited at LA's Gallery 1998.


Roll up, roll up, Gallery1988 in Los Angeles is hosting Robot Carnival, a group exhibition featuring new work from Dave Pressler and Mark Bryan.

The show will also include smaller works by fellow robot artists David Chung, Aaron Jasinski, Gabe Lanza, Geoffrey Gersten, Joshua Ellingson, Lawrence Yang, Shaunna Peterson, and Wade Schin.

Until the show closes on November 7, Gallery1988 will evoke an old­-time carnival, replete with popcorn and candy floss.

"Sly, playful, seductive, and humorous, the works in this exhibition transport us into a parallel world filled with mechanical imitations of our selves," said Gallery1988. "Rather than being completely mechanised beings that humans have fast become reliant on, the satirical characters in Robot Carnival give us space to imagine and play."
