Giacomo Gambineri recreates 146 TV moments for New York Magazine cover

One of the biggest cultural shifts in the past 20 years has been the emergence of TV as a credible and innovative creative medium. New York Magazine produces an annual TV issue and this time around they commissioned Italian illustrator Giacomo Gambineri to create a mural for the cover, featuring a staggering 146 memorable small-screen moments from the past year. There’s spoiler alerts aplenty but with nods to Wolf Hall, Mad Men, Gotham, Game of Thrones, House of Cards plus Katy Perry and her dancing sharks and a very rude scene from Girls , this is a comprehensive cavalcade of the characters that have defined another stonking year of TV. The good people at Vulture have broken them down if you want to see all 146 represented on the cover.
