As a tribute to Beastie Boys co-founder Adam “MCA” Yauch, who passed away May 4, 2012, artist James Curran is showing “A Year and a Day,” an exhibit at Beach London that features 35 framed prints, each showcasing three iconic representations of references made in the band’s lyrics. Among them are comic-book nods to Captain Marvel, Popeye and underground artist Vaughn Bode.
A limited number of prints will be available for sale during the exhibition, which runs through Sunday, with proceeds benefiting Macmillan Cancer Support. You can check out the related video below, along with two more comics-related images.
You might remember last year when Gallery 1988 hosted an art show that paid tribute to Stan Lee. This year they’re paying tribute to the Beastie Boys, with artwork by more than 100 contributors, including some comic artists like Jim Mahfood, Dave Crosland and Israel Sanchez.
The show runs through Jan. 29 at Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles, or you can view all the artwork here.
