.In Wes Anderson movies, children are often born into dysfunctional families and the father is never there, or doesn’t care (just like many real-life stories…).
San Francisco’s Spoke Art Gallery picked up on this theme when they opened an exhibition called Bad Dads in 2011, which has now become a yearly event thanks to the contribution of more than 400 artists. Now, the best work from the Bad Dads show has been turned into a book called Bad Dads: Art Inspired by the Films of Wes Anderson. Even the book’s design resembles his signature aesthetic style: A confused Bill Murray, a miserable Margot Tenenbaum, many other neglected sons and daughters and neglectful dads are included in this book as illustrations, paintings, sculptures, and screen prints.
You can sign us up for anything Wes Anderson anyways….
