In celebration of the pin up girl, Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra, CA opened an outstanding group exhibition this past February 5th entitled “Poster Peep Show: The Art of the Pinup”. In homage to such pin up masters as Gil Elvgren and Alberto Vargas, the gallery has put toegther an amazing list of classic and contemporary artists. Works from Marcelo Dadolce, Olivia De Berardinis, Shane Glines, Bill Presing, Rockinâ€™ Jelly Bean, Marguerite Sauvage, Stuntkid, Francis Vallejo and many more can be seen on the website now. I especially like the series of watercolor portraits Olivia did of Marilyn Monroe, it shows how skilled and consistent her style is. A few of the works were also made into giclee prints, such as Rockin Jelly Bean’s “Evil Valentine” (shown first).
