Das Boot


This weekend the Mondo Gallery will be celebrating the work of artist Ken Taylor, who has rapidly become one of the most sought after artists for film and music prints. His stamp is all over the last few years of Mondo selections, with prints for Watchmen, Halloween and Drive among the independent art purveyor’s most popular works. With “The Art of Ken Taylor,” Mondo is giving the Australian designer the space his work has long deserved in a show all his own. Opening on May 30 at 7pm at the Mondo Gallery location (4115 Guadalupe St. in Austin, TX), the show will feature prints for films such as Children of Men and Little Shop of Horrors, both films that have not yet been featured as part of any prior Mondo releases.

Another film that has never received the Mondo treatment: Wolfgang Peterson’s claustrophobic 1981 submarine drama Das Boot. Nominated for 6 Academy Awards and long heralded for its visceral portrayal of what it would be like to be a line-level soldier locked in an airtight submarine in the middle of the greatest war the world has ever known. Regardless of what side you were on, it would be a living hell. Truly one of the great war films of all time, it’s long past its due for some celebration. Luckily Ken Taylor has included it in his gallery show. It’s a poster we are overjoyed to be able to share with you today…

Without further ado, Ken Taylor’s Das Boot Mondo poster:

Both prints will be available as part of the show opening Friday, May 30. For more of Ken Taylor’s previous Mondo work, click here.
