10 Artworks That Prove David Lynch Has The Most Talented Cult Following In The Game

Posted: Updated:

David Lynch is already a cult film icon, terrifying musician, provocative fine artist and hair visionary. Now the multi-talented creative force can add artistic muse to his repertoire.

A new exhibition at Spoke Art Gallery in San Francisco is honoring all things Lynch, with a hauntingly beautiful ode to Agent Dale Cooper, "Eraserhead," "The Elephant Man" and all things that linger between dreams and reality. The exhibition, aptly titled "In Dreams," extends from the quaint, small town of Twin Peaks to the dark, winding roads of Mulholland Drive, showing how the most baffling of mysteries can lurk in the most banal locales. The melange of Lynch-centric artworks, ranging from cute to snarky to outright horrifying, shows just how much Lynch has made his way into our collective psyche, whether we like it or not.

The exhibition features 50 artists from around the world, with paintings, drawings, sculptures and prints that depict the hypnotic nooks and crannies of everyday spaces. See a selection of the works below, proof that no one makes movies quite like Mr. Lynch.

  • Joshua Budich - "The Owls Are Not What They Seem"
  • Michael Ramstead - "We Don't Stop Here"
