Disco Frankenstein

Chicago-based artist Johnny Sampson paints a Groovy Frankenstein for the Disco Age. This circa 1974 Monster has big hair and a Fu mustache. He wears a fat tie, wooly sweater and burnt orange shirt with a long, pointy collar.

This Frankenstein is part of the Horrorwood group show currently on view at the WWA Gallery in Culver City, California. Sampson also gives the Seventies treatment to a mulleted Wolfman and a turtle-necked Lagoon Creature. They would all look good tooling around in a Plymouth Duster.

Check out Sampson’s website and blog for more of his distinctive interpretations of monster and pop culture icons. All truly terrific, and Frankenstein is one of the artist’s favorite subjects.
