Film Posters reinterpreted comes back this year with the hard not to like theme, Creature Features, and includes the work of 13 graphic illustrators from the Stroud area.
Each is unique and takes on some classic, and some not-so-classic films, showing the ingenuity and skill of this slick artist collective to reinterpret original poster graphics and create something completely new.
The range of styles and process is broad and all the better for it, whilst the overarching sensitivity and flare exude fun all the way. The posters are playful, powerful and just 13 great examples of great design. Titles include 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, The Creature from the Black Lagoon, The Jungle Book, Chicken Run and Jaws.
Photographer Simon Pizzey attended the private view this week for Stroud Times.
Imogen Harvey-Lewis, co-curator with Mark Levy, said: “Creature Features is such a great theme to sink our teeth into (no pun intended in that I have illustrated Stephen Spielberg’s Jaws) with infinite picturesque titles to choose from. If we’d had more time I think we could have gone on to produce a whole Ark full”.
“Being part of the amazing Stroud Film Festival is an honour and delight. Such a fantastic local opportunity to learn, expand, engage, laugh, cry and come together”.
Digital poster copies are available for sale.
The free exhibition runs until Monday, March 6th in the Lansdown Gallery, Stroud, 6-9pm and then in The Museum in The Park from 8-30th March. Opening times may vary.
