Mondo Presents Saturday Morning Mashup: The Art of Jeroen Huijbregts

Today, Mondo opened an interesting mashup gallery that we saw raise some eyebrows online. It blurs the line of fair use – the artist Jeroen Huijbregts hand paints iconic characters smashed together with interesting counterparts. He pulls from film, comics, and cartoons, and from my perspective puts enough of a twist on them to change the source material in engaging ways.

The show starts tonight, April 22, 2016 from 7pm to 10pm with a reception open to the public with Jeroen Huijbregts in attendance. If you can’t make it tonight, the gallery will still be open Tuesday through Saturday from 12pm to 6pm until Saturday, May 7, 2016. Check out the press release below for more information directly from the mouth of Mondo, and at the end of the post you’ll find a gallery filled with pictures of every piece available.

“We first came across Jeroen’s work online and were instantly intrigued and blown away by it,” said Mondo Co-Founder/Creative Director Mitch Putnam. “It’s extremely exciting to see a wide variety of characters mashed up so effortlessly, adding a new identity to these beloved icons so ingrained in our imaginations. We can’t wait to see the full show come together.”

Hailing from the Netherlands, Huijbregts is an illustrator and graphic designer respected and recognized recognized for his unique skill and the thought process he puts into each piece.

“I try to blend iconic popular culture imagery to create an image that’s recognizable, but also something that’s new and unique. I’m stoked to share the new pieces and ideas I’ve been working for this show,” said Jeroen Huijbregts.
