Blue Velvet Artwork From “30 Years Later” Tribute To The Films Of 1986

Stand by Me, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Labyrinth, Aliens, Highlander, Short Circuit, The Hitcher…

Seems like all my childhood favorite movies are from 1986. And I hope you noticed I even left out Top Gun David Lynch’s Blue Velvet!

Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles recently exhibited a group show called 30 Years Later with over 200 pieces of artwork inspired by movies released in 1986. Below you’ll find all its Blue Velvet referencing works, beginning with the show’s title piece starring dozens of 1986’s movie characters in 100% Soft‘s signature kawaii style. Can you find Dorothy Vallens, Jeffrey Beaumont and the most adorable Frank Booth you’ll ever see?
