BONFIRE Gallery presents LIMBO LOUNGE, a graphic novel by acclaimed artist and illustrator Dave Calver. Limbo Lounge exhibits selections from some of the 420 art pieces published in the graphic novel, released February 6th and already on Amazon’s list of best-selling graphic novels:
“This trippy, surreal, full color adventure brings us from the hot, swirling sands of hell to the colorfully bizarre “Limbo Lounge,” filled with the recently deceased as well as bored oddball interlopers from hell. Meet flower-headed freaks, Bud and Lou. Root for their friend, a spry, elderly nun, Sister Eunice, as she works remotely in Limbo continuing to rid earth of despicable dirt bags. And, by all means, avoid the knife-wielding little pageant-princess-gone-bad as she plots for anything she can get at anyone’s expense.”
Artist Dave Calver’s rich, evocative, surreal work has been widely featured from The New York Times and Vanity Fair, to Rolling Stone and Playboy. Taschen recently chose him as one of their favorite 100 illustrators in the world. Huffington Post’s review of Taschen’s ”100 Illustrators,” singled out Calver as their #1 favorite. Published internationally, Calver’s work includes film, sculpture and commercial works.
