It’s that time again Los Angeles! This Friday, August 3rd, Hero Complex Gallery is rolling out the most metallic show of the year– literally! Entitled Bleeding Metallics, the show is bound to be the shiniest thing this side of the verse, featuring tons of art created with metallic inks, paints, papers and even metal itself! If this brief preview is any indication, you can also expect lots of robots, mechs and superheroes all claiming the glistening element.

Opening reception is this Friday, August 3rd from 7-10 PM, visit Hero Complex Gallery or follow @HeroComplexArt for full info and updates (the official flyer is at the very bottom). Art will be available online Saturday at 1PM.

To kick off the preview, here’s an exclusive reveal from Matt Ferguson, who’s created a direct companion to his earlier Megatron poster for the gallery. Long live Optimus! A semi-related side note: If you dig Matt’s work and were blown away by his Trek series, keep checking our site next week for the next phase of our collaboration and an exciting announcement!

7.31 Update: New reveals from Craig Drake, Tracie Ching, Mayra Fersner, Joe Vetoe, Florey, Eternally Torqued, Peter Gutierrez & Geoff Trapp!
