Film Posters Re-interpreted!

I stumbled upon some gorgeous graphic work that I absolutely have to share. Cosh Gallery in London has a show on right now called “Now Showing”.

“40+ Creatives were given the task of creating their own interpretation of a Cult, Classic or Obscure film poster from the past, whether it be a literal or abstract solution. The result is Now Showing, an Art exhibition paying homage to more than 70 years of film, through the form of Prints, One Off Screen Prints and Sculptures.”

Hellovon, Non Format, Marian Bantjes, Tomer Hanuka, and Pure Evil are among the artists showing. Enjoy.

See a whole bunch more after the jump!

Flickr user Keepsmesane kindly uploaded all these images I posted here as well as actual photographs from the gallery, check them out:

You may remember JR from his silent protest with Darren Aronofsky last year (click here for previous post). This time around the French artist has covered the Louvre’s massive glass pyramid with a black and white rendering of the building behind, creating the effect that the landmark has disappeared. The installation will be messing with selfie-seeking tourists from now until June 27th. More images below!
