Inspiration can be fleeting, so who better to invoke artistic creativity than a French EDM duo that has been pushing the envelope, visually and musically, for more than 20 years.

Cue Daft Punk Deux, an exhibit of Daft Punk-inspired artwork from 40 sculptors, painters and digital artists, now on display at San Francisco’s Gauntlet Gallery. It’s a tribute to the artists’ enormous success—five Grammy awards in 2013, including record of the year—and signature helmets. “The artwork created for this show draws inspiration from Daft Punk’s music videos, extraordinary visuals of their live performances, and their robot personas,” the gallery says in a statement.

In the spirit of Daft Punk’s 2001 hit “One More Time,” this is the Gauntlet’s second attempt at an art show celebrating the band. As Flavorwire notes, the gallery’s first Daft Punk-oriented exhibit, ReDiscovery, celebrated the band’s beats before last year’s arrival of its widely celebrated album, Random Access Memories. Judging by this year’s collection, groovy summer hits with recognizable rhythm, coupled with a revived interest in holographic visors, perform well on canvas.

Daft Punk Deux is on display at San Francisco’s Gauntlet Gallery until June 21.
