Gauntlet Gallery is proud to present DP3, the third installment of their group exhibit inspired by the French electronic music duo. Following the incredibly popular exhibitions of the past two years, DP3 will continue to grow and progress as an exciting group show.

This year’s art exhibit will feature works by over 40 painters, sculptors, digital and screen print artists, each of whom has created an original work of art in tribute to the world’s most renowned DJ’s and live performers.

I’m calling the series Daftermath and it was inspired by all manner of cyberpunk influences.My favourite Daft punk track is probably Da Funk. Probably due to the ace video by Spike Jonze that introduces Charles (the dog guy) that I also featured in the set. – L.G.
