Monsters and robots are staples of fantasy and science fiction art. Whether they’re alone, together, or facing off with each other, giant organic creatures and mechanical mastery are both things that can spark anyone’s imagination.

So, when looking to do a new scifi-inspired art show, San Francisco gallery the loin decided to embrace the monster and robot idea.

“In talking about a theme for a this show, we realized we all grew up on monsters and robots, whether it was via anime, comics, or old Toho and Ray Harryhausen movies,” loin curator Jarred Hand told io9. “A mecha/kaiju show seemed like a perfect fit.”

And so, here it is. The Kaiju/Mecha Art Show is open starting from 6-1opm on August 3 at the loin, which is at 914 Larkin St in San Francisco, CA. It remains open through the end of the month.

Here’s a bunch of work from the show.
