Gallery: 'Weird Al' at Gallery1988


Over the course of a four-plus decade career as pop's premier parodist, "Weird Al" Yankovic has sold more than 12 million albums, earning five Grammys, four gold records, and six platinum. But this month, he's receiving the ultimater recognition of his importance to popular culture: a tribute show at Gallery1988. The L.A.-based gallery's celebration of Yankovic, which opened last Friday, features paintings, graphic design, sculptures, and more, inspired by Yankovic's songs, his 1989 cult movie UHF, and the man himself.

We picked out a few of our favorites; you can check them all out on G1988's site.
