A tease of the Gallery1988 Yu-Gi-Oh! art show pieces included in this post

Of the more than 50 pieces of Yu-Gi-Oh! art at Gallery1988, there is one that you will never, ever be able to see anywhere else. It’s a piece that no one can ever own, and once the art exhibition closes, it is forever lost. What is it?

It’s this wall mural, titled Yugi Muto, by Haste.

As the gallery’s only perishable piece, Yugi Muto also has the distinction of being the largest; it spans nearly the entire height of the gallery’s walls. Haste happens to be the artist who designed and painted Gallery1988’s storefront.

Despite its size and position next to the entrance, some gallery visitors (including myself) almost missed this piece. You really have to move a few steps back in order to take in the entire thing.

One of the big draws of the art show is an exhibit by Pretty in Plastic, a fine art fabrication studio based in Hollywood. Touted as a “once-in-a-lifetime installation,” Pretty in Plastic’s sculpture of Yami Yugi, called Duel Time, greeted all the excited visitors.
