This weekend, Gallery Nucleus in Los Angeles teamed up with Grey Matter Art to present an official tribute exhibition for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. The show, “What’s Up, Danger? The Into the Spider-Verse Tribute Show”, featured a stunning collection of pieces inspired by the film, with many of them coming from animators and artists who worked on the Oscar-winning feature.

Artists included Babs Tarr, Drew Hartel, Megan Lawton, Mindy Lee, Mingjue Helen Chen, Erik Ly, and several others, along with a book signing by Zac Retz, Yuhki Demers, and Robh Ruppel. Much like the movie, the show featured some dazzling illustrations and paintings that vividly bring the Spider-Verse to life. Here’s a look at some of the pieces:

The official Spider-Verse show, “What’s up Danger?” opens tonight at @gallerynucleus. If you’re in the area, definitely check it out. Im not able to attend but you’ll have a chance to snag prints of the digital version (image 6/6) in addition to seeing the original acrylic version(images 1/5). Yep, that’s right, I like to punish myself and painted all of those tiny shapes and color changes! This piece is one of only 3 originals in this style and like all my originals, they’re not scanned to make prints. They’re truly a one off. – – – #schmandrewart #independentartists #illustration #illustratorsoninstagram #columbusart #columbusartist #artmakescbus #gallerynucleus #greymatterart #spidermanintothespiderverse #gwenstacy #spidergwen #peterbparker #milesmorales #pennyparker #marvel

Chelsea was born and raised in New Orleans, which explains her affinity for cheesy grits and Britney Spears. An pop culture journalist since 2012, her work has appeared on Autostraddle, AfterEllen, and more. Her beats include queer popular culture, film, television, republican clownery, and the unwavering belief that 'The Long Kiss Goodnight' is the greatest movie ever made. She currently resides in sunny Los Angeles, with her husband, 2 sons, and one poorly behaved rescue dog. She is a former roller derby girl and a black belt in Judo, so she is not to be trifled with. She loves the word “Jewess” and wishes more people used it to describe her.
