Nathan Stapley is an artist who brings together famous faces in a collaborative way in order to make a work of art that is both witty and wonderful. His latest work titled 'The Same Gang: Compartmentalizing Pop-Culture Iconography' is truly a monumental pop culture mashup.

When looking through this preview of Nathan Stapley's 'Ramone Warriors,' 'Greasers' and 'Dads' portraits, it's easy to pick out a ton of familiar faces that certainly fit well together; who knew Mrs. Doubtfire and Darth Vader would ever grace the same page? This latest exhibit will be on display at the Gallery1988 in Santa Monica, California from August 26 - September 10, 2011 and is certainly worth checking out.
