Quentin vs. Coen

An exhibition that makes our lives that little bit easier.

Life is full of choices, and they're never easy. For the more indecisive among us, choosing what to eat for breakfast can be the worst part of an otherwise fantastic day. As for picking a movie to watch or an art exhibition to see - don't even get me started.

Luckily for people like me (and for everyone else!), a little art gallery based in San Francisco has gone to the effort to make the choices in life just that little bit easier. Spoke Art is travelling to the Big Apple to produce their next art show, which happens to be a tribute to movie director greats Quentin Tarantino and the Coen brothers. The exhibition is appropriately called Quentin Vs. Coen, and 8 a bunch of super-talented American artists interpreting various scenes from all those movies we know and love. There's an artwork based on Uma Thurman's spectacular turn for the worse in Pulp Fiction and, of course, endless reproductions of 'The Dude'.

The show only runs for two days - April 7 until April 9 - but the good news is that there will be a 'The Dude' costume contest on opening night, as well as a host of other fun activities. The bad news is that the exhibition is being held at the Bold Hype Gallery in NYC, which means that most people will probably have to wait until all the works are made available on Spoke's online shop after the show ends.

May we all be so lucky as to one day have a painting of Jeff Bridges in our homes.
